Chapter Summary

A lower part of a tapered stele of Thasian marble found in Thasos in 1969 near the coast, south of Potos, among the excavated remains of a post-Byzantine chapel which had utilized building materials of the early Christian period in its construction. This fragment probably regulates a cult founded by one Antiochus, listing oblations, libations, and distribution of parts, though it is possible that Antiochus merely dedicated the stone, or perhaps something to which the sacrifice relates. Pouilloux pointed to similarities between this fragment and the almost equally fragmentary, very short LSS 70. Veligianni dated the inscription on the basis of the use of the Parian alphabet, employed in Thasos down to about 430-425, on characteristic letter forms, on the use of XΣ for Ξ, and on the loose semi-stoichedon style.
