[Στρα?]τὼι Εὐπολέμω


French translation

[Stra?]tô fille d'Eupolémos.

English translation

[Stra?]to daughter of Eupolemos.

Italian translation

[Stra?]tò figlia di Eupolemos.


A man named Eupolemos was the father of two soldiers mentionned in IGCyr015100 (l.10 and l.11). This woman might be his daughter. Her name cannot be restored with full confidence: we prefer Στρατώι, which is the only one matching the gap which is attested up to now in Cyrenaica for the Hellenistic period (see IGCyr105600). However, Μυρτώι, known in the first century A.D. would also fit the presumable gap, as well as Κρατώι, attested at Cos in the first century B.C.
