An overlooked 2nd-century BC decree by the polis of the Orthieians, Thessaly

By Robin Rönnlund

Abstract

The National Archive of Monuments in Athens contains a dossier with documents regarding complications relating to road construction works in 1905 at the then-unknown archaeological site of Kedros in Western Thessaly. Among the documents is a paper copy of a fragmentary inscription of the 2nd century BC, reportedly found at the site. The preserved text of the inscription indicates that it was an honorific decree set up by the polis of the Orthieians to a benefactor from the nearby city of Gomphoi.
