Abstract

This, the inaugural volume of AIUK, publishes the important hellenistic inscription in Petworth House. Dating to 108/7 BC it honours the maidens who worked on the robe (peplos) for the statue of Athena. Another small fragment of the same inscription is in the Epigraphical Museum, Athens. It is one of three similar inscriptions which date to around the same decade and seem to reflect a revival or reform of the arrangements for making the peplos, which was carried in procession and presented to the goddess at the Panathenaia festival. The names of the maidens are listed in a “roll of honour” at the bottom of the inscription. This and the lists of maidens in the other two inscriptions supply us with much of our information on the female members of elite Athenian families at this period.
