Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the Kalaureia Research Program excavations of 2007 and 2008,
four joining blocks of a statue base were unearthed. The monument
is a dedication from the polis of Arsinoe in the Peloponnese: its
inhabitants offered two statues, of King Ptolemaios and his sisterwife
Arsinoe Philadelphos, to Poseidon. The present article publishes
the monument and its inscription, and proceeds to present a
reconstruction and an attempt at positioning the monument in its
historical context.
