Abstract

The lamella, found in the oracular sanctuary of Dodona, contains a public enquiry addressed by Corcyreans and Oricians to Zeus Naios and Diona. The enquiry belongs to the most widespread typology of requests in Dodona: those aimed at obtaining the indication of the divinities to whom it was better to offer prayers in order to obtain protection or support. It is not clear whether this was a periodic practice linked to the attention paid to obtain divine help in the domain of ritual action or to a specific decision matured by the two poleis while facing some adversity. It suggests, however, the existence of a close relationship – perhaps a sympoliteia – between Corcira and Orikos.
