GRA I 43 = IG II² 1335 = CCIS II 51 = PHI 3551 = AGRW ID# 3946


Tablet of Pentelic marble, broken at the bottom (139 x 37 x 3.0 cm; letter height: 0.8 cm). Beyond the leadership, there are 51 members of this group. Many members are identified by the Attic subdivision (deme) from which they come (i.e. they are Athenian citizens), but there are also some immigrants from Miletos, Antioch, Laodicea, and Macedonia. So this is a mixed group of citizens and non-citizens.
