Inscriptions from Panakton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Six inscriptions of the 4th and 3rd centuries b.c. recovered during surface survey and excavation at Panakton (the paleokastro above Prasino/Kavasala) are published here in full, four of them for the first time. The earliest, an arsenal inventory, preserves an archon date of 343/2 b.c.; three are ephebic texts of the Lykourgan era; one is a dedication by soldiers of the garrison in the second half of the 3rd century; one is a fragmentary heading. These inscriptions, the first found on this site, prove beyond doubt that this was the Athenian fortress of Panakton, and they provide new evidence for armaments, the ephebeia, and the history of Panakton among Attic garrison forts.
