stele of Aristion was found in 1838
in the ruined village of Velanideza,
which lies at about two-thirds the dis-
tance between Spata and the eastern
coast of Attika, not, as is frequently
stated, on the plain of Marathon, be-
tween which and Velanideza intervenes
the eastern range of Pentelikon. It
comprises three distinct parts: the relief
itself, the base proper, and a smooth
surface between the relief and the base,
which Mr. Kabbadias calls the Kpij-n-^.
The /c/37j7T('5and the base proper (fidOpov)
must be distinguished : the Kp^-jris, in
a sense a base, is the surface upon which
stands the figure in relief, and is as es-
sential a part of the representation as
the ground upon which stand the figures
in a picture. The fidOpov, on the other
hand, serves as the base of the whole
monument, and is an external feature
corresponding to the frame of the pic-
ture. The height of the whole monu-
ment, inclusive of the (3d8pov, is 2.40
met.; the fidOpov itself has a height of
0.30 met., a width of 0.715, and a thick-
ness of 0.435 m. The width of the
stole at the bottom is 0.435 m., at the
