Chapter Summary

Fragment of a white marble stele, said to have been found in southern Attica, south of the village of Olympos, between it and the village of Anavyssos. The stone is broken above, below, and on the right. Part of the left margin survives at the level of lines 16-23. Part of the rough-picked back survives. Despite signs of weathering, the inscribed face is fairly well preserved. This set of regulations concerned with the cult of the Eleusinian gods, Demeter, Kore, Plouton, and Iacchus alongside, so it seems, Demeter Thesmophoros, was attributed by Vanderpool to the deme Phrearrhioi mentioned in line 12. It seems clear that these regulations govern the performance of public cult, most likely during a celebration of a festival involving Eleusinian gods and Demeter Thesmophoros.

Keywords: Attica; Demeter Thesmophoros; Phrearrhioi; SEG XXXV
