From the Son of Poseidon to Members of the Elite in Late Hellenistic HalikarnassosFra Poseidons søn til medlemmer af eliten i det senhellenistiske Halikarnassos
The article concerns the fate of an often cited list of priests for Poseidon, which at some point was established and cut into a stele in ancient Halikarnassos. The list could be considered the genealogical table of Halikarnassos: The cult of Poseidon was founded by colonists from Troizen and the first priest on the list was a son of the god Poseidon himself. This could be read from the inscription on a new stele to which it was decided to transfer all the names on the first stele in the Late Hellenistic Period. The article presents two new documents for future discussions on when, why and by whom it was felt important to underline in public the tradition of the very old and unbroken connection between Halikarnassos and Troizen.
