i.a. Source type(s) Epigraphic source(s)
i.b. Document(s) typology & language/script Honorary dedication in Greek
i.c. Physical format(s) Fragmentary statue base of Lartian marble. Originally it was furnished with an entablature on which the first (and now not extant) part of the inscription was carved, and which supported the statues of two persons. C. Blinkenberg (I. Lindos II 656, comment ad loc.) considers it probable that they were a married couple, but his suggestion cannot be confirmed.
ii. Source(s) provenance In a vineyard south of the village Lartos (in the territory of ancient Lindos), close to the sea.


iv. Honours/Other activities This body, which possibly is a private association, honoured the two persons concerned twice (I.Lindos II 656, l. 3), each time with a gold wreath (χρυσέωι [στεφάνωι], chryseoi stephanoi). Their honours are listed together with those bestowed on the same individuals by at least three other private associations: one, whose name is fully preserved, Hermaistan (koinon); and two others, whose names are only partially preserved: Adoniasta[n - - -] (koinon) and Sarapiast[an - - - ] (koinon).


i. Private association Possible
Note Even though the name of this body does not survive, its status as a private association is regarded as possible on the strength of its being listed together with private associations as honouring the same pair of persons (cf. CAPInv. 78, CAPInv. 81, and CAPInv. 1822).
