Abstract

The stele, found immured in a wall near the entrance of the Church of Mary in the Monastery of Skripù, close to the site of the ancient temple of the Graces at Orchomenus, preserves the names of the victors of two poetic-musical festivals, Charitesia and Homoloia. The date based on prosopography in the first half of the first century B.C. and the mention of the competition ‘for the epinicians’ allow to postulate a relationship between the institution of the two festivals and the policy of Sulla after the First Mithridatic war, when the roman general sought to gain the support of the Boeotians through the establishment of musical contests in many towns.
