Grave-stele of Hybrion from Palaiogoulás
Grave-stele of Hybrion from cemetery site on the slopes of Palaiogoulás (site A120), probably ancient Sellasia. LS ii. 214, no. 2 and pl. 18 b. (reprinted in SEG 47. 352)
Hybrion is an unattested name. The Spartan custom was that only soldiers killed in battle, and women dying in childbirth, were named on gravestones, so this man could be a casualty of warfare, perhaps one of the known campaigns in the area of Sellasia.
