Abstract

The bronze tablet, with its 23 lines, presumably comes from Arcadia and can be dated to the first half of the 5th century BCE. Despite the fragmentary nature of the document, it is possible to identify some regulations of sacrifices and rites, and celebrations in honor of various deities. The sacrifices took place in different locations, many of which are otherwise unknown. The possibility that the sacrificial calendar was linked to sporting events, often interconnected with religious events, is also discussed.
