iv. Honours/Other activities The honorand probably came from Kolonos (ἐκ Κο[λωνοῦ]) or alternatively from Koile (ἐκ Κο[ίλης]), both Attic demes. Homolle (1879: 374) suggested that he was an epimeletes, which does not seem unlikely but is not certain. Cf. Roussel and Launey (in I.Délos 1799).


i. Comments Homolle (1879: 374, no. 14; cf. Poland 1909: 560, no. B 166b) restored [ἡ] σύνο[δος τῶν Τυριών
εμπόρων] καὶ να[υκλήρων], [he] syno[dos ton Tyrion emporon] kai na[ukleron] (ll. 1-2) and suggested an identification with the known association of Tyrian emporoi and naukleroi (CAPInv. 12), but this is questionable. Roussel and Launey (eds. of I.Delos 1799)
render the beginning of the text as [ἡ] σύνοδ̣[ος τῶν -- -- -- ἐμπόρων?] καὶ να[υκλήρων?], [he] synod[os ton -- -- -- emporon?] kai na[ukleron]. Cf. Roussel 1987: 95, n. 5.

i. Private association Possible
Note While the terminology (synodos, restored) combined with the nature of the text (probably honorary) suggest that it concerns an association, the inscription is very fragmentary and little can be said with certainty.
