Trois nouvelles proxénies d’Érétrie. Contribution à la géographie historique de l’Eubée : les dèmes de Phègoè, Ptéchai et Boudion

Abstract : Publication of three proxeny decrees found between 2003 and 2011 in the Greek and Swiss excavations at Eretria. N° 1 is for a Samian around 300 BC, n° 2 for two Rhodians having paid the ransom of citizens kept as prisoners (perhaps after the seizure of the city in 198 BC), n° 3 – much damaged – probably for a man of Histiaia-Oreos. The phraseology of the formulae for grant of privileges to the benefactors is the subject of a detailed study. Each demotic following the name of the Eretrian proposers provides an opportunity for adressing the problems of identification of the three demes concerned here, in particular Phegoe, a new place name directly related to the word phegos, which, admittetly, is used in Greek for a kind of oak tree : but of what botanic species exactly ? In the case of Ptechai and Boudion, the author gives his reasons for locating these demes in the very center of the civic territory and in the hinterland of Amarynthos respectively.
