Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a selection of texts discovered by the Boiotia Cities Survey teams within the last few years. These texts have been chosen as they present documents which, although short and fragmentary, contribute materially to our knowledge of the history and workings of the polis of Thespiai. Three of the six texts are of wider interest beyond the immediate context of Thespiai. Most of the texts are in the Boiotian dialect.

Keywords: agoranomos; Apollo Genetas; Artemis Eileithyia; Boiotia; Boiotian dialect; Domitian; Hagnistai; Mouseia; pentekostologoi; Thespiai

Chapter.  9405 words.  Illustrated.
