bibliography            

Horos stone of marble found at Spata (about 20 km east of Athens). On "contributing-members" (eranistai) as ongoing associations rather than merely ad hoc loaning groups, see the recent study by Thomsen 2015. The phrase "sold on condition of release" (πεπραμένων ἐπὶ λυσει) denotes not an actual sale, but the offering of securities for a loan with an expectation that the pledged securities would be "released" upon repayment of the loan.

Marker (horos) of a property and house sold on condition of release to the contributing-members (eranistai) who are with Aristophon from Eiresidai subdivision for a loan of 1 talent (= 6000 drachmas).
