Chapter Summary

A left lower part of a stele of lightish, mottled Lartian stone, discovered in 1952 or 1953 in the territory of the deme Κλάσιοι or Πεδιεĩς, at the small coastal town of Charaki near Malonas, north of Lindus. Kontorini noticed the striking similarities between this difficult fragment and the section on hikesioi in the cathartic law from Cyrene, LSS 115 B 28-59. Similarities between the two documents are rather confined to the third Cyrene paragraph dealing with a homicide hikesios. It is noteworthy that the Cyrene document is mainly interested in the procedure itself, originally private, now stateendorsed.

Keywords: Kontorini; Lindus; Rhodes; SEG XXXIX.729
