The lettering allows to date this list with confidence around the middle of the fourth century. It is very similar with lists of military officers like for instance IGCyr014800. A Kallippos son of Pratomedes is mentioned there (a.ii.32) as commander of a company of four-horse chariots, whereas a Kleon son of Pollidas is mentioned as a damiergos in IGCyr012400. Both mentioned inscriptions are dated around 335/330 B.C. So their fathers might be mentioned here at lines 4 and 7.
