Membership List of Temenitai Devoted to Agathe Tyche, Apollo and Hermes (190/189 BCE) Miletos - Ionia

Miletos (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), 190/189 BCE
IMilet 796 = Günther 1995, 47-53 (no. 2) = SEG 45 (1995), no. 1607 = AGRW ID# 12193


Slab of white marble with upper mouldings (inv. 1840; 79.5 x 41-45 x 9.5 cm; letter height: 1 cm). This association of temenitai (unlike some others with this designation) consists of immigrants, primarily from Antioch and from Laodikeia (likely the Syrian cities by that name). Tonatros is an otherwise unattested place, it seems. The monument was later reused (II-III CE) as a grave stone (see lines 19-21).

(A) To good fortune!  When Hestiaios was crown–bearer and Eision son of Antiochos from Antioch was treasurer of the gold and secretary, these members of the sanctuary–association (temenitai) of Agathe Tyche, Apollo, and Hermes were gathered together: Eision son of Antiochos from Antioch, Eukrates son of Eukrates from Antioch, Ophelion son of Hermias from Damascus, Perigenes son of Noumenios from Antioch, Kapindas son of Xenaros from Tonatros, Demetrios son of Demetrios from Antioch, Agathon son of Agathon from Galatia, Phoinix son of Theudas from Laodikeia, Nikephoros son of Apollonios from Amastris, (10) Demokrates son of Dositheos from Laodikeia, Nikokles son of Zotikos from Antioch, Zosimos son of Philippos from Laodikeia, Hermias son of Artemisios from Thrace.
