Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum: 743


THE AINIANES HONOUR LUCULLUS

Greek text:   IG_9.2.38
Date:     88-80 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

The Ainianes, a tribe in central Greece, were probably made free by the Romans in 167 B.C., and formed a league, with its centre in the city of Hypata; see D.Graninger,"Cult and Koinon in Hellenistic Thessaly", p. 35 ( Google Books ).   If the word 'quaestor' is used literally in this inscription ( rather than 'proquaestor', as in Syll_745 ), then it can be dated more precisely to 88/7 B.C.


The league of the Ainianes honours [Lucius] Licinius Lucullus, [son] of Lucius, quaestor, their benefactor.
