Section Number:   Ξ 553
Title:   Prytany Decree Fragments
Category:   Inscriptions
Description:   Inscribed fragments.
The larger part of fragment Ξ 553 a) is in places badly discolored by burning; not so the smaller pieces which fit directly on to a discolored face of the other. The breaks thus occured before the burning.
The letters are carelessly carved; in only one case is there a clear cross bar in "alpha"; in no cases is the middle bar of "epsilon" put in; the "omicron", always small, is in some cases represented simply by two dots.
On fragments Ξ 553 a), e), f) and g), a simple face is preserved; on the others, part of the left side, as well as the inscribed face, remains.
Fragment Ξ 553 a) is mended from three pieces; fragment Ξ 553 b), from two.
On fragment Ξ 553 a), fifteen lines of the inscription preserved; on the others, from five lines to one letter.
Hymettian marble.
