Agora Object: I 4913
Inventory Number:   I 4913
Section Number:   Β 1832
Title:   Prytany Decree Fragments
Category:   Inscriptions
Description:   Inscribed fragments.
Two fragments, both from the right side apparently of the same large stele. The stele had in late times been carefully cut up into small brick-like pieces of which these are two.
Since the veins of impurities in these two fragments do not correspond closely, they must have been separated by a considerable interval in the stele.
The stele was finished horizontally on top with an ovolo moulding on face A and on the sides. The sides are roughly hammer-dressed. The stele was opisthographic, face B having been inscribed subsequently, its text enclosed in a panel with pedimental top worked in low relief.
Fragment Β 1832 a), from the upper right corner of the stele.
On face A, thirteen lines of the inscription preserved, with a rasura beneath the first line; on face B, four lines.
Fragment Β 1832 b), from the lower right corner of the stele.
On face A, sixteen lines of the inscription preserved, the lower five in a corona; on face B, five lines.
Pentelic marble.
Cf. Hesperia Suppl. 4 (1940), p. 101.
