Chapter Summary

The text provides an ideal summary of the variety of complications in Greek polytheism that is discovered so far and leads us to another. First, following the first editors, rendered as &t;Zeus Heraios and Zeus King and Zeus of Concord&t; is in the text literally worded as &t;Zeus Heraios and King and of Concord.&t; The fact that the name Zeus is omitted in the latter two addressees might suggest that here one Zeus with three different epithets is intended. Yet, one knows that three different cults and locations are concerned. Earlier Zeus Heraios and his specific nature was discussed. Further, it is remarkable that two Concords are mentioned in the inscription, one used as an epithet of Zeus, the other as a separate personification. All these 'curiosa' however are not of present concern. The first identification in the present context is convenient for thematical reasons.

Keywords: Appendices; cults; curiosa; epithet; Greek polytheism; Zeus Heraios; Zeus King; Zeus of Concord
