No. 38 Julio-Claudian Period Cn [>--] f> Ar[---] co [ s > ----provinciae Afr] icae [-----provinciae Cretae et C] yrenar [um] [? ] 1 Through the generous assistance of the Council for Research in the Social Sciences at Columbia University and through the cooperation of the authorities of Barnard College, the writer was enabled to go to Athens for the academic year 1939-1940 and to prepare for publication the late inscriptions, of which the second installment is here presented. The numbers follow in consecutive order after the last Agora inscription, published above on pp. 85-90. American School of Classical Studies at Athens is collaborating with JSTOR to digitize, preserve, and extend access to Hesperia ® 238 JAMES H. OLIVER The inscription honors a man with a distinguished senatorial career. In line 3 the last visible letter seems to be R rather than I, and, therefore, the reference is to a provincial magistracy like that of a proconsul or legate and not to a military command in the legio III Cyrenaica. DEDICATION FROMI THE ACROPOLIS 39. A fragment of Pentelic marble found on February 24, 1934 in the demolition of a modern wall in Section A. The stone preserves part of the left side, but it is broken away at the right, above, below, and at the back. Height, 0.25 M.; width, 0.20 m.; thickness, 0. 10 M. Height of letters, 0.027 m.
