abstract

In 2015, a new 22-line-long fifth-century-BC Arkadian inscription was published for the first time. While prior editors thought that the document dealt with rites pertaining to a single festival, a new interpretation of the text as a sacrificial calendar covering a few months is here envisaged. In addition, closer examination of the inscription’s economic aspects calls for a lower dating. Although spits recur twice, local silver coinage is likely mentioned in line 22. Therefore, the text cannot be earlier than the mid-fifth century BC. Lastly, an educated guess is made about the nature of the “one-hundred” mentioned in line 10.
