Inscription A was found among the ruins of the temple of Apollo Smintheus in Troas; B and C were found at Delphi. In C, Sylloge³ restored the name as "[Kassandros] of A[lexandria Troas], the son of Menestheus". It is recorded in Syll_585 (line 40) that Kassandros was made a proxenos of Delphi in 165 B.C.; but C can be dated to 158 B.C.
