V.&S.: (a) Gr. on bottom: N]ε τον Δια και τον Α[πολλο και τεν Δεμετρα και τεν Αθενααν και τον Ποσειδο] και τον [Αρε]. νε το[ς] θεο[ς παντας] αι θ[εοι τε ισαι το. (b) Gr. on the floor: --](.)ος
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} there are many scratches on this Gr.; see pl. 30.
  • CAVI Comments: Schweigert saw that (a) is the formula of an oath; cf. Acr. ii, 1445: [---]ραι και Κλεταγορη φιλετα(ι)[ροι] | [νη τ]ον Δια και την Δημητρα. Lang thinks one or two other deities may have been added in the first line of (a), which must have been followed by a wish that a certain person be avenged or punished; (b) was then added to include one more deity and the other Olympian gods. V.&S. had considered (a) and (b) as one inscription and added many divinities. -ταισαιτο is clearly to be preferred to τε ισαι το, but since no personal name is extant we cannot know if the oath is an affirmation or a curse. Lang's version, however, lacks any reference to female divinities. The inscription needs further study.
