Chapter Summary

A fragment of grayish marble found by chance by workers on the coast in construction fills in 1989. It is obvious that this fragment concerns the Hermaia, a gymnasium festival. Solomonik dated the inscription to the second century B.C. according to letter forms, citing IOSPE I2 348, 349, 352, and 353 and E.I. Solomonik, Novye epigraficheskie pamjatniki Khersonesa (NEPKh) I, Kiev, 1964, no. 1 as parallels. Makarov identified it as a decree or a sacred law concerned with the activity of the gymnasiarch and the ephebes. He dates the document to shortly before 110 B.C., around the time when, at the end of the period of the Scythian-Chersonesian wars, as is vividly described in the ca. 107 B.C.
