Chapter Summary

A limestone stele found in 1966 near the acropolis of Haliartus. In its present condition, the stone is shaped like a quarter of a cylinder; originally it might have been shaped like a cylinder or a semi-cylinder, in which case it could have formed a part of a cylindrical monument. The interpretation of this difficult document involves two basic questions, namely: (1) where was the sacrifice to Athena and Zeus supposed to take place; (2) did the Acraephian ambassadors invite the Haliartans to participate in one event or two. These questions are addressed against the background of the Ptoia. The Ptoia was a musical competition in honor of the Ptoan Apollo. The festival underwent reorganizations during which the Ptoia became Pan-Boeotian when, under the auspices of the Delphic amphictyony, the city of Acraephia formally invited Boeotian cities to share in it.
