CAPInv. 47: Hages[tr]a[teio]n kai Leukareio[n] ko[ino]n


i. Geographical area Aegean Islands
ii. Region Rhodes
iii. Site Lindos


i. Full name (original language) Ἁγεσ[τρ]α[τείω]ν καὶ Λευκαρείω[ν] κο[ινόν]
ii. Full name (transliterated) Hages[tr]a[teio]n kai Leukareio[n] ko[ino]n


i. Date(s) 115 (?) BC


ii. Name elements
Personal:The personal names Hagestratos and Leukaros are probably those of the founders of this association. The first (Hagestratos) is well attested in Lindos (I.Lindos II index I 1, s.v.). The existence of the second Hagestratos has been inferred from the name of the association of the present entry: LGPN I, s.v. (no. 7).
iii. Descriptive terms κο[ινόν], ko[inon]
Note The context in which this appears (I.Lindos II 252, ll. 250-57) renders the restoration certain.

iv. Status The Timapolis who appears to act in conjunction with this association makes also separate contributions to the same subscription (epidosis) with 5 other associations (I.Lindos II 252, ll. 250-58). Moreover, this Timapolis is either one of the two or perhaps four persons with that name (all of them of the Lindian deme Kamyndioi) in the same document (I.Lindos II 252, ll. 34, 39, 86 and 89; see also Blinkenberg's comments ad loc.


i. Local interaction The Hagestrateion kai Leukareion koinon appears together with one Timapolis as one of the contributors to a subscription (epidosis) canvased by the Lindian assembly. The amount contributed is not preserved. The total sum collected was to be used for paying for the golden wreaths that the Lindians dedicated to Athana Lindia, Zeus Polieus and Nike. The list of contributors includes individuals (all of them Lindian demesmen) and and a number of associations. Six of these associations contribute together with Timapolis, while two of them carry his name. These are: the Ἀθαναιστᾶ[ν] Τιμαπολείων κοινον, Athanaista[n] Timapoleion koinon and the Τιμαπολείων κο[ιν]όν, Timapoleion ko[in]on (ibid. l. 250).


i. Private association Certain
Note The presence of two personal names as elements of the name of this body, in combination with the use of the word koinon, makes it certain that it was a private association.
