thickness of the stone would not be an insuperable objection, as
both fragments are extremely uneven at the back. Furthermore
while most of the names which can be made out with certainty
are in the nominative, we have ~Kdpna in line 13 and an accusa-
tive ending apparently at the beginning of line 20. Even the
two consecutive nominatives in line 5, which may be regarded as
certain, although this is one of the most worn places of the stone,
are paralleled in No. XIII as we have seen. Some of the names
are also the same, as 'ApiaroTToXi*; (5), 'AydOcov (15), perhaps
KXeoVoXt? (19, 21), and in different form '0<£eXXtW (20).
But even the slight differences in the letters mentioned above
taken together with the different thickness of the stones make it
safer to treat the two pieces as belonging to different inscriptions.
We seem to have genitives also in this inscription as —mvot
(2) 'Apd%va<s (23) ]/cXeiSa (18). Of these, however, only the last
seems reasonably certain, as the first may be —ovos, a nominative
ending, and in 23 we may have 'Apdyya followed by a name
beginning with 2.
Line 22 which shows several letters at the beginning hard to
combine into any proper name may contain something else than
names, but this is doubtful. After this line there is space for
another, which was left blank.
A small irregular piece .07 m. from top to bottom, .18 m.wide,
of about the same thickness as No. XIV. The letters also are
identical, so that in spite of different weathering19 it is not
