Title:   Decree Fragment
Category:   Inscriptions
Description:   Inscribed fragment of stele.
The top akroterion and some of the bottom below the setting line broken away; otherwise intact.
An attempt was made in antiquity to break up the stele, and a narrow channel was run about half way across the face between the relief and the first line of the inscription; another, shorter line was started a little higher up. Fortunately neither of these channels coused any serious damage.
The stele has a pedimental top. The moulding below was decorated with a painted egg and dart, clear traces of which remain.
On the relief at the top of the stele are portrayed a seated man (Demos) who is being crowned by a woman (Democracy?) who stands beside him.
Decree of the Nomothetai; archonship of Phrynichos.
Twenty-nine lines of the inscription preserved, with thirty-six letters in each line except line fifteen which has only thirty-five; stoichedon.
Pentelic marble.
