Chapter Summary

The stone, which had been used as the covering, probably of an early Christian tomb, was discovered in 1949 by the brothers E. and C. Karantoumani on their land at Palaiophoros, at the south entrance to Beroia. It was then used by the finders as a ramp in their garden and eventually removed to the Museum at Thessaloniki and from there to the newly built museum in Beroia. The inscription, first published in a provisional form by Cormack, had been known to a number of scholars, including M.P. Nilsson and J. and L. Robert, through copies made by B.G. Kallipolitis and C. Makaronas. The recent publication of a letter of Antigonus Doson to be dated probably to 223 B.C, I.Beroia 4, helps to date the present inscription on a prosopographical basis.
