Chapter Summary

The stone was discovered in 1924 in a building in Pithagorio by Albert Rehm who copied it, made a squeeze, and had it transferred to the museum where it seems to have to been lost. The squeeze survives in the collection of the Inscriptiones Graecae in Berlin. This is one of two inscriptions dealing with the sale of priesthoods known from Samos. The other one, IG XII 1197,1 first published by P. Herrmann, 'Eine "pierre errante" in Samos: Kultgesetz der Korybanten,' Chiron 32, 2002, 157-172, probably reached Samos from Erythrae. The present stone is also likely to have reached the island from a mainland location where the sale of priesthoods was practiced.
