The first stone, no.


The second fragment of an inscription reads:

ΑΜΟΡΙΟΥ[........]
ΥΣΕΒΑΣΤΟΥ[..........]
ΕΞΑΜΗΝΟ[..........]
ΑΠΟΛΛΟΔΟ[......]
MΙΛΤΙΑΔΟΥ[..........]
ΠΡΟΕΔΡΟΥ[.......]

The first line ΑΜΟΡΙΟΥ puzzles me as it could mean lots of things and I can't suggest anything for sure.
The other lines suggest that the people who dedicated this stone were probably Apollodoros and Miltiades. Apollodoros was well respected while Miltiades was president (in Athens ΠΡΟΕΔΡΟΣ was the presiding person in the assembly of the Boule/Ekklesia, the parlament of the time so to speak).
Do you have any information on this inscription (dating, location where it was found)?

At last, I have peace.
