OGIS: 216


A STATUE OF PHILA AT DELOS

Greek text:   IG_11.4.1098
Date:   253-239 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

Although little is know about queen Phila, the wife of Antigonos Gonatas, it seems that she lived on until about the end of his reign, and her statue was probably set up after the battle of Andros, when the fleet of Antigonos gained control of most of the Aegean Sea; see W.W.Tarn, "Antigonos Gonatas", page 389 ( archive.org ).


...ophanes of Tenedos, the son of Dem..., dedicated this statue of queen Phila, the daughter of [king] Seleukos and wife of king Antigonos.   Parthenokles of Athens made the statue.
