Chapter Summary

The bronze tablets of Entella have been variously dated to the mid-late fourth-early third century B.C. or to the mid-third century, before and after the Roman penetration into Sicily respectively, on the basis of references to external events. The town of Nakone, mentioned in Stephanus of Byzantium and the Suda is otherwise known from its coins of the late fifth and first half of the fourth century B.C. Though from a cultic point of view the significant part of the document is confined to a few lines, it is important for the study of Greek cult practice because it governs the institution of a festival, regardless of its civic impetus. The festival was clearly instituted to commemorate the reconciliation.
