Horos fragment of marble. Now in Laureion Museum (inv. 30). 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 (?) . . . sold on condition of release to . . contributors (eranistai) for a loan of 3000 drachmas.
