This is one of many similar inscriptions set up during the 3rd century B.C. to commemorate the festival of Apollonia in Delos (the complete series is IG_11.2.105-128). In previous centuries, Delos had been particularly famous for its female choruses, the kourai Deliades ( Hom:Hymn_3'156-164 ), but by this time the choruses were mostly similar to what was found in other parts of the Hellenistic world.


When Kleostratos was archon, these were the leaders of the choruses.
