abstract

This fifth-century-BC dedicatory inscription ‘to the goddess’ reports the three offerers, who were likely some local magistrates, whose names, i.e. Oinadas, Eukelados, Cheimaros, are rarely attested outside Locroi. The stone was found in the chora of the ancient polis, suggesting that it probably belonged to the rich extra moenia sanctuary of Persephone, which is well documented by ancient literary sources that refer to pillages and destruction, as well as by archaeological evidence, among which helmets and the famous pinakes.
