bibliography            

Two fragments of a slab of marble. The reference to Dionysos in connection with a ritual bed of straw (stibadeion) may suggest some connection to an association devoted to Dionysos, along the lines of the cowherds attested at Pergamon (cf. the Iobacchoi inscription from Athens, where the term stibas is used).

Aristarchos. . . son of Name (?). . . dedicated the banqueting (or: sacrificial) area (stibadeion; literally: little bed of straw) (?) to Dionysos Kathegemon and to the . . . cowherds (?).
