abstract

The agora of Iasos in Caria yielded a 3rd/2nd century BC decree which fulfilled a certain Kydias’ proposal to display the copy of the Athenian-proxeny conferral to three earlier Iaseans. The Iasean part retains a valuable passage about the rare Archive of the Prostates, while the copy allowed a progress in the exegesis of the original decree; it also allowed to form hypotheses on the context of the honours to the three Iaseans and on the reasons that led Iasos and Kydias to commemorate them. It is instrumental, in this sense, to understand the other survived Athenian provision, about the arrangement of a group of philo-Athenian Iaseans.
