abstract

Two funeral monuments, whose texts can be situated between the seventh and the sixth centuries BC, were found within a few decades of each other in Vlachomandra, an Aetolian village between Naupactus and the federal centre of Thermo. The sepulchral cippus of Dolichas seems to be the most ancient: as a matter of fact, it probably draws from a poetical popular repertoire that precedes the spreading of Homer’s epic corpus, which instead is visible in the other inscription, that is the sepulchral cippus of Promathos.
