26.90 (IG II2 734 +) Athens, EM 7323 303/2 Plate 29

Two joining fragments: a (EM 7323) with relief, found between Theatre of Dionysos and Odeion of Herodes Atticus, + b (EM 4614), provenance unknown. Broken all around. Relief separated from inscription by moulding consisting of broad taenia, ovolo, and narrow lower taenia, together 0.047 wide. White, medium-grained marble. p.h. 0.33, p.w. 0.20, p. th. 0.165, relief h. 0.04, h. of letters 0.005-0.006,

The fragmentary inscription apparently reaffirms a citizenship grant for a person whose name is not preserved. It is securely dated to the ninth prytany of the archonship of Leostratos, 303/2 (lines 1-2) by the coincidence of its secretary with that of IG II2 489, 493-497. All that remains of the relief is the foot of a figure standing on the right and turning toward the left, where another figure, Athena or Demos, probably originally stood.
