New tile-stamp of the 'Synod in the Aliteion'
New tile-stamp of the 'Synod in the (h)Aliteion', found near Aphisiou (site n318, a dump). LS ii. 223 no. 18 and pl. 21 b. (reprinted in SEG 47. 372 bis)
"Of the synod in the Aliteion (or Haliteion)."
For synodos cf. A. J. B. Wace, 'The stamped tiles', BSA 13 (1906-7), 17-43, at p. 41, no. 50 with fig. 7 d; 51, fig. 7 e. For (h)Aliteion cf. ibid. 42-3, no. 63 (IG v. 1. 884), where Wace reads 'Alpeion' on the basis of Paus. iii. 18. 2 (Alpion). Both Wace and Pausanias, however, should be emended so as to refer to the Alit(e)ion or Halit(e)ion.
