bibliography            

Two pieces of a stone found in the room of a later building near the west-gate of the market (agora). This fragmentary inscription lists the members and functionaries of a group, probably an association. The functionaries include more than one "priest", probably more than one "hymn composer" or "hymn-singer" (hymnologos), and perhaps an expounder of the stories of the gods, a theologian (theologos).

Too fragmentary to translate.
