Delos (Southwestern islands, Aegean Islands — Pleiades map), after 166 BCE
= PHI 64094
= ID# 21148
Two fragments from a base (23 x 30 cm). In the gateway of the Artemis sanctuary in 1937 (inv. Ε 62 αβ). These groups may be temporary formations for the purpose of providing honors, rather than ongoing associations with clear organizations. However, we do know that immigrants (esp. Romans), merchants, and shippers did regularly form more permanent associations on Delos and elsewhere, so this is also a possibility with some of these groups here.
The Athenian and Roman . . . settlers (katoikountes) (?) . . . on Delos and the merchants (emporoi). . . who sail into the trading station set this up for Dionysios . . .
