Abstract

The bronze table, found in Megara on a hill called Alkathoos, has to be associated with the temple of Athena seen by Pausanias in 1.42.4. The table is broken on the upper part, where the name of those who did the ex-voto were placed. The text mentions the offering of a tenth of a booty, deducted from some marauders and then consecrated to the goddess Athena. From the graphic peculiarities of the letters, we can deduce a chronology about 450-440 BC.

Keywords
