Format:   see key to translations

In 210 B.C. Attalos I bought Aigina from the Aetolians for a price of thirty talents, after the island had been captured by the Romans ( Polyb_22.8'9-10 ). The island gave the Attalid kings a base from which to exert influence in mainland Greece, and it remained under their control until the end of the kingdom in 133 B.C.


King Attalos dedicated these first-fruits of the revenue from Aigina to Athene.
