ATTALOS I DEDICATES SPOILS FROM A SEA-BATTLE

Greek text:   IvP_1.52
Date:   201-198 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

The name of Chios has been lost from this inscription, but it is a reasonable assumption that it refers to the sea-battle in which Attalos and his Rhodian allies inflicted serious losses on the Macedonian fleet ( Polyb_16.2-10 ).


[King] Attalos dedicated this to [Zeus] and [Athene] Nikephoros, from the sea-battle [against Philippos] and the Macedonians [(?) near Chios].
