bibliography            

This very fragmentary inscription involves a society (thiasos) honoring its treasurer, Paidikos, in connection with his contributions during war and his participation in a sacrifice for Zeus Soter and Hygieia. There were likely about 22 members of the society. Although fragmentary, the absence of any demotics suggests that these were not likely citizens.

Too fragmentary to translate.
