Adramytteion (Mysia and the Troad, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), 25-1 BCE
IAdramytteion 19 = IMT 718 = PHI 288198 = AGRW ID# 1405


Round base of marble (118 x 60 cm). The suggested date is based on the identification of this Xenokles with the one mentioned by Cicero, Brut. 316. Another fragmentary honorary inscription (IAdramytteion 21) may also involve the Roman businessmen. Adramytteion was a colony of Athens, and there are references to Attic demes (subdivisions) there.

The People and the Romans engaged in business (pragmateuomenoi) honored Alkippides son of Xenokles the Phalerean (i.e. of the Phaleron deme or subdivision of Attica), friend of the homeland, hero, and benefactor, when Demetrios son of Stilbonos was supervising.
