TitleDedica votiva da Tebe Ftiotide
Abstract

L'epigrafe si colloca  su una stele su cui è incisa, a bassorilievo, un'edicoletta composta da due colonne e un'architrave che ospita, al centro, un rilievo raffigurante due trecce di capelli. La dedica riporta nome e patronimico di due fratelli offerenti, Philombrotos e Aphthonetos, corredato di e, di seguito, il nome della divinità destinataria dell'offerta, al dativo. Il dono votivo proviene da Tebe Ftiotide in Tessaglia ed è destinato a Poseidone, il cui culto nella regione era connesso ai riti di passaggio all'età adulta. La scelta di realizzare ed offrire la stele è motivata dalla volontà di conferire durevolezza e concretezza ad un dono (di capelli veri) che altrimenti non si sarebbe conservato, considerando la sua deperibilità.
