bibliography            

Fragment of a block of yellow limestone (9.2 x 6.1 cm; letter height: 1.0-1.6 cm); now in the Tanais museum. This fragmentary inscription from the late Hellenistic era is among the earliest attestations of associations at Tanais. The inscription most likely involves a synod of society-members whose leaders probably included a goodness-loving official (philagathon) and a temple-warden (neōkoros; cf. IBosp 1054, from Hermonassa).

Too fragmentary to translate.
