ἐπὶ ἀγωνοθέτου τοῦ

Αὐρηλίου Τρωΐλου Μάγαν–
τος τοῦ Τρωΐλου Βουβω–
νέος καὶ Καδυανδέος
Μᾶρ(κος) Αὐρ(ήλιος) Ἑρμαῖος δὶς
Τρωΐλου Θόαντος, Βου–
βωνεὺς, νεικήσας ἀγῶ–
να θέμιδος τετραετηρι–
κῆς ἀνδρῶν πάλην.

During the presidency of the games of the most notable ex-Lyciarch Marcus Aurelius Troilos, son of Magas, son of Troilos, citizen of Boubon and Kadyanda, Marcus Aurelius Hermaios II, grandson of Troilos, great grandson of Thoas, citizen of Boubon, having won the men's contest in wrestling in the triennial prize games.

Rectangular base, profiled on three sides, preserving a foot-shaped cutting for a statue on the top surface, found and documented in Boubon (no further specification) by Kalinka in 1895.

Height: 82 cm; length: 46 cm; depth: 35 cm; letters: not available

Heberdey and Kalinka 1897, no. 55; IGR III 461; Schindler 1972, no. 15; BullÉp 1973, no. 459; Milner 1998, p. 2, no. 1.28.

L. 3-5 : The agonothetes Marcus Aurelius Troilos appears also in no. 34 and in an honorary inscription from Balboura (IGR III 474, republished in Coulton, Milner and Reyes 1988, pp. 56-60; cf. SEG 38 [1988], no. 1450), where he is said to be, again, a citizen of Boubon and Kadyanda, but also πολιτευόμενος καὶ ἐν ταῖς κατὰ Λυκίαν πόλεσιν πάσαις. For this expression see most recently Behrwald 2000, pp. 225-228; Kokkinia 2000, pp. 235-238. Τρωΐλος: see no. 23. Μάγας: see no. 24.

L. 6 : Kadyanda was located near modern Üzümlü, 35 km southwest of Boubon, on the other (south) side of the 2418 m high Boncuk Dağları. Apparently, at least in the case of Marcus Aurelius Troilos' family, neither the distance nor the terrain discouraged relations between elite members of the two cities; cf. Robert (in BullÉp).

L. 7-8 : Ἑρμαῖος and Θόας: see no. 72.
