Horos slab of limestone found near the temple Daphneios. On "contributors" (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 contributors (eranistai) who are with Philon for a loan of 2000 drachmas.
