Both sides of a bronze semicircular mitra, coming from Arkades (south of Lyttos), were reused to inscribe a contract drawn up between the Dataleis and the scribe Spensithios. It is the first intact document that testifies to the creation of a ‘technical’ public appointment and it is the Greek text in which the importance of the representatives assigned to the writing and the recording of the public documents is most clearly perceived.
