184.
Honorary decree
Athens, AM 2668 4th c. (?) Plate 95

Probably from Akropolis. Part of top preserved, back rough-picked. Badly damaged border above, 0.06 wide. Surface worn. White, medium-grained marble. p.h. 0.19, p.w. 0.16, th. 0.11, relief h. 0.01.

None of the inscription is preserved, but the subject of the relief indicates that it belonged to an honorary decree. All that remains is the right arm of a figure, perhaps Athena, extending a crown toward the left where the honorand must once have stood. Walter believed that the deeply cut contours around the relief indicated unfinished work.

Sybel, 432 no. 7004; Walter, Beschreibung, 23 no. 33, fig. 33; U. Kron, AM 95 (1979) 51 n. 7; Meyer, 313 A 175.
