C. I. A. 281 : V. 21. Date : Later than the reign of Hadrian.

C. I. A.: Vocis Ato5 repetitionem, id quod Vischerus negat, a mera
lapicidae socordia profectam esse patet; nam quaenam alia causa

vult.

M., Heor., p. 454, n. : Der Zeus Eleutherios oder Soter ist erst
nach dem Perser-Krieg mit Bezug auf die Schlacht bei Plataeae
(Thucy., II. 71) aufgestellt, und als Soterienopfer muss demnach
von a. Chr. 479 an aufgenommen sein. Cf. also the remainder of
the note.

That there was a cult of Zeus Soter associated with Athena is
well known, though it is difficult to determine the exact place of the
sanctuary. In the Piraeus there was certainly a re/Aero? (Strabo, IX.
p. 396 ; Paus., I. 1, 3) ; and there seems to have been one in Athens
also, but it is uncertain where it stood.*

C. I. A. 283 : V. 12. Date: Not before the second century a.d.

The seat of the Phaidyntes of Zeus from Pisa.

The Phaidyntai were those who had charge of the God's statue,
and attended to the cleaning of it. The word is usually written
cfxuSpwrai, coming from the verb ^atSpwetv, to wash or cleanse. The
descendants of Phidias were Phaidryntai at Olympia (Paus., V.
14, 5) ; cf. Martha, Sacer. Ath., p. 54. It is impossible to say when
this cult of Zeis Ik Ileto-T/s was introduced into Athens. The pre-
sumption is that it is late. Cf. C. I. A., III. 5 ; M., Heor., p. 236.

* Cf. Lycurg., Leocr., § 17: oi>5e t?;v aKpiwoXiv ko.I to 'lepbv tov Aihs rod
'Xwrripos Kai r?\s 'A9r]vus rrfS ^coTelpas a.(popu>y. Cf. also §§ 136, 137.

Vischer, who refers § 17 .to a sanctuary on the Acropolis (p. 48), suggests
in a note that it may refer to the one in Piraeus. Cf. Rang., Antiq. Hell., II.
pp. 410, 411; Welck., Gr. Gotterl., II. p. 1S4; Plut., Demos., 27; Boeckh,
S'aatsh. d. Alt., II. pp. 130, 139; C. I. A., II. 325, 326.
