|i.a.||Source type(s)||Epigraphic source(s)|
|i.b.||Document(s) typology & language/script||Both Greek inscriptions are funerary stelai. IG VII 686 is in the Boiotian dialect, while SEG 32: 488 is in the koine.|
IG VII 686: stele of local black limestone with triangular top. The outline of a pediment is rendered with fine picking.
SEG 32: 488: very worn stele of beige marble with pediment and acroteria. Two four-petalled rosettes are placed between the second and third lines of the inscription. The stone has probably been re-used: traces of letters – of which none can be securely read – are visible above the rosettes.
VIII. PROPERTY AND POSSESSIONS
|ii.||Realty||The association probably owned burial grounds where the two members were buried.|
|Note||The two known members (Galatas and Eutychos) are male, and there is no reason not to assume that they are adults. This is strengthened by the fact that the association is associated with vine-dressers in SEG 32: 488 (see CAPInv. 923).|
|iv.||Status||Galatas, buried in IG VII 686, may be as a slave because of his name (ethnic).|
|iv.||Honours/Other activities||The Dionysiastai buried two of their members.|
|i.||Local interaction||The Dionysiastai are associated with the vine-dressers (ampelourgoi, l. 5) in SEG 32: 488 (see CAPInv. 923) to bury their common member Eutychos.|
|ii.||Poland concordance||Poland B 33 (IG VII 686)|
