VIII. PROPERTY AND POSSESSIONS
|ii.||Realty||The association may have owned burial grounds|
|Note||Only one male member of this association is known.|
|Note||The member of the Aphrodisiastai is also an archer, and therefore must be considered as an adult.|
|iv.||Status||Probably a citizen given that the deceased was also an archer.|
|iv.||Honours/Other activities||Burial of their members|
|i.||Local interaction||The Aphrodisiastai join the Aristiastai (see CAPInv. 988) and the archers to bury their common member (see CAPInv. 932)|
|i.||Comments||Given that there is a definite article and that it is not reiterated between the Aristiastai and the Aphrodisiastai (τὺ σουνθούτη τὺ Ἀριστ[ι]αστὴ κὴ Ἀφροδισιαστ[ή], ty sounthoute ty Arist[i]aste ke Aphrodisiast[e], ll. 2-4), it could be argued that the Aristiastai and Aphrodisiastai were one single association. However, the Aristiastai bury one of their members by themselves (see CAPInv. 988). See Marchand (2015) for a detailed discussion of this question.|
