i. Comments It is possible that the dedicants are magistrates. That is suggested by the presence of οἰνοχόος, oinochoos (cup bearer), who usually takes part in the public sacrifices: see one inscription (now lost) from Thyrreion, IG IX I2 2, 247, and two inscriptions from Ambracia: Baldassarra 2010: 344-346, T1-T2. However οἰνοχόος, oinochoos (cup bearer), is mentioned also in a dedication to Artemis offered by the members of a religious assiciation at Palairos: see CAPInv 1106.
