bibliography            

Fragments of marble, now in Thessalonike Museum (inv. no. 2186; maximum original size was likely 30 x 35 x 8 cm). This heavily reconstructed text by Edson was presumably based on a comparison with IG X/2.1 288.

The associates (synētheis) of Herakles set this up for Name the fellow-associate (?) . . .  as a memorial when Kotys son of Eirene was leader of the gathering (archisynagōgos) (?) and when Aulus . . . and (?) Lykarion were the secretaries (?).
