OGIS: 15


A DEDICATION BY ARSINOĒ IN SAMOTHRACE

Greek text:   IG_12.8.227
Date:   299-281 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

This inscription recorded the dedication of the Rotunda of Arsinoe II on the island of Samothrace. Dittenberger restored the inscription to refer to Lysimachos as Arsinoē's husband, rather than her later husband Ptolemy II; but this is not certain.


Queen Arsinoē, daughter of [king] Ptolemaios [and wife of king Lysimachos, dedicated this as a prayer] to the Great Gods.
