The trust fund of Phaenia Aromation (IG V.1 1208) and Imperial Gytheion
In the small town of Gytheion in southern Laconia two marble blocks were found, containing the regulations for a trust fund from the year 42 AD (IG V,1 1208; SEG 13,258). The text will be presented with new emendations and an English translation. In my commentary I present the general background of the donor, Phaenia Aromation, and concentrate on a discussion of the juridical problems that the text poses. A detailed analysis of the procedural prescriptions forms the centre of this paper.
