Date:     c. 225 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

Inscription B (not included by Dittenberger) provides some more information about Lykos. It was found in Thermon, and may be evidence of an Aetolian debt crisis at the end of the third century B.C.; see E.Mackil, "Creating a Common Polity", pp.312-3 ( Google Books ).


[A]

Lykos [of Aetolia, the son of Diokles] dedicates these statues to Apollo.

[B]   The city of Pleuron dedicated this statue of Lykos of Kalydon, the son of Diokles, who freed them from debt and was a benefactor of the city.
