Chapter Summary

A tapered stele stone was found in Eleusis on January 7, 1970, at the intersection of Nikolaidou and Hygieias streets, during the excavation of the house of the Liaskos brothers. It had been used in the wall of a house of the late Roman period. The two decrees are presented in an inverse chronological order. The first is a decree honoring Philokomos and Moirokles, the proposer of the second decree and the person who has successfully brought the plan prescribed therein to fruition respectively. Philokomos, who proposed that the festival of Heracles in Akris, obviously a deme festival consisting of a public sacrifice, be funded by quarry revenues, is to be honored with a golden crown paid for by Moirokles, who himself receives an olive crown for his role.
