Chapter Summary

A block of gray marble, brought from Myloi Kastellou to the museum at Chios in 1983. The chronological relationship between the two difficult decrees (A-B) is clear: the second is later than the first. It cannot be much later, since the letters of both decrees appear to be similar. The two essential points in B are the assignment of the victim's head to the priestess at a public sacrifice, where she had not received any part of the victim in A, and the punishment clause. Koumanoudis and Matthaiou dated the inscriptions on the basis of the genitive singular in ō, the omission of ι in ποίῃ, and on the shortened introductory formulas.
