VIII. PROPERTY AND POSSESSIONS
|iii.||Income||Fines: a fine of 1500 denarii is payable to the techne ton leukourgon in case of tomb violation (l. 3). This amount is inferred by the term [τὸ ἴσο]ν ([to iso]n, l. 3) referring to the amount of 1500 denarii payable to the city. Although the word is largely restored, a similar expression is used in IMT Kyz Kapu Dağ 1584 l. 8 / CAP Inv..|
|i.||Local interaction||A fine was incurred in case of violation of a private funerary monument; in particular, 1500 denarii were to be paid to the city (largely restored, line 3) and an equal amount ([τὸ ἴσο]ν, [to iso]n, l. 3) was also payable to the techne ton leukourgon.|
This association might be one and the same as CAP Inv. 1169 for the following reasons:
- both are funerary inscriptions stipulating fines in case of tomb violation payable to the association of marble workers (leukourgoi) or stone cutters (lithoxooi).
- both inscriptions were found reused in the Monastery of Lips. They might have been transported from the same cemetery given that both inscriptions are funerary.

|Note||The terminology used (techne, see above IV.iii. followed by the name of craftsmen) makes it certain that we have here a private professional association.|
