Abstract

The contribution capitalizes on a careful re-reading of I.Iasos 220, a well-known cultic regulation concerning the rights of the priest of Zeus Megistos dating to the Classical period (now preserved in the British Museum), as well as on the fortuitous discovery during the 2011 Italian excavation campaign of a fragmentary stele preserving a portion of a slightly later copy of the same text. During its reuse, the letters in the central section of the London stone were purposefully erased, thus making the newly discovered fragment particularly valuable. The new edition proposed here in some cases corrects, and in others confirms — despite subsequent conjectures — many of the first editor’s (E.L. Hicks) proposed supplements. The improvements on the reading of the text bring to light new details about priestly prerogatives and, in addition, all of the major problems posed by the document are discussed in the commentary.
