Chapter Summary

Petrakos dated the inscription to the fourth century B.C. He noted that it was a sacred law enumerating offerings and sacrifices to a divinity, and referred to it in his note on the stipulation in LSCG 69.30-31 that allows worshippers at the Amphiareum to sacrifice whatever animal they wish, noting that this license was due to the broader policy of the sanctuary. In EBGR 1997 no. 296 Chaniotis noted the concern with sacrifices and references to a table of offerings, animals, an amount of two obols, and the lease of an item. In SEG XLVII 488 he further interpreted this reference and suggested a number of restoration.
