Horos stone. Here a group of sacrificing associates offers a loan with the debtor pledging property as a security (expressed in terms of it being "sold on condition of release" should the debt be repaid). In other words, the sale was not permanent if the loan was repaid.
Marker (horos) of a property sold on condition of release for 400 drachmas to the sacrificing associates (orgeōnes).
