Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the texts of unpublished stone, and stele of grey marble from Orkhomenos. In his original publication of this tombstone the late John Buckler (1984) noted that there was only a solitary example of this name in Boiotia, at far distant Tanagra, Inscriptiones Graecae (IG) vii 1622 where the name is spelled ?Ξενοκρατέα; in fact, in the spelling seen on the present text, one find single examples at Oropos and at Abai, Ambryssos and Stiris in the adjacent Eastern parts of Phokis. The chapter also reviews the skene of the theatre and two adjoining blocks from a Doric epistyle of grey-white marble. It outlines grave altar, where top portion of a grave altar with outcurving moulding across top; broken across a little below second line of inscription and lying upside down in area of theatre.

Keywords: Boiotia; Doric epistyle; grave altar; John Buckler; Orkhomenos
