IStratonikeia 352 = Georges Cousin, "Inscriptions du Sanctuaire de Zeus Panamaros," BCH 28 (1904) 20–53, at 39 (no. 23b) = PHI 261973 = AGRW ID# 12765


Stone broken in the middle with two inscriptions (only the text on side B is presented here).

. . . the priest has contributed (?) . . . towards the celebrations of Hera in an extravagant manner, inviting the corporate body (politeuma) of women (gynaikes) and distributing to each member one denarius, along with the other customary things.  Likewise, he did the same for the women who came down together with their husbands, both locals and . . . foreigners (?) . . .
