Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum: 638


CORCYRA ARBITRATES IN A BOUNDARY DISPUTE BETWEEN MONDAIA AND AZOROS

Greek text:   IG_9.1.689
Date:     soon after 178 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

This inscription was found on the island of Corcyra. Azoros was a member of the Perrhaibian League and Mondaia was a member of the Thessalian League; therefore to ensure impartiality they asked an external state to arbitrate between them.   The approximate date is fixed by the mention of the Thessalian leader, Hippolochos of Larisa ( who appears, for instance, in Syll_636 ).


When Hippolochos of Larisa the son of Alexippos was general of the Thessalians for the second time, on the thirtieth day of the month of Themistios, as the Thessalians reckon; and when Demetrios of Gonnoi the son of Demainetos was general of the Perrhaibians, on the thirtieth day of the month of Dios, as the Perrhaibians reckon; after the Mondaians and Azoriastans gave their agreement to arbitration, with Lysanor of Apollonia the son of Phintylos acting as recorder and Xenophantos of Kerkyra the son of Dameas and Kleostratos of Dyrrachion the son of Damarchos as his fellow judges; we have decided, after going to the land and being led round it by each party, that the boundaries of the Mondaians and Azoriastans shall be, from . . . then again of the Mondaians . . .
