Chapter Summary

A complete overview of the use of the word τελετή in inscriptions has long been a desideratum. In his review of Zijderveld's dissertation, Otto Kern already expressed his regret that this important work did not pro- vide a systematic review of all the epigraphical evidence. This chapter, therefore, gives an overview of where and how τελετή is used in inscriptions. The chapter believes it is safe to arrange the epigraphical attestations into the following six categories: A. Religious ritual or ceremony B. Religious festival C. Eleusinian mysteries D. Other mysteries E. Taurobolium F. The goddess Telete. Within these categories, the author arranged the inscriptions geographically according to their place of origin.

Keywords: Eleusinian mysteries; inscription; religious ritual
