Chapter Summary

The stone, which had passed through several hands during the 1960s and 1970s before it was donated to the J. Paul Getty Museum, is said to have come from Liopesi, a village in central Attica, the site of the deme Paiania. The inscription is full of details which ought to have been obvious to its target audience. Thus, while allowing us a glimpse, into the mundane reality of an association with its intricate combination of finance and religion, this document may also serve as an indication of the gaps in our knowledge of matters pertaining to contemporary Athenian associations, cult practice, topography, and prosopography. The word ἔϱανος suffice to mention here the two basic meanings: (1) a meal consisting of contributions made by those participating in it; (2) a particular kind of loan, perhaps friendly, but not necessarily interest-free.
