Tombstone of Eubolos
From Tanagra in Boiotia, 3rd century
A very fine example of the oblong type, found only in Boiotia, in Thebes,
Tanagra and Thespiai. The distinctively Boiotian helmet, shield and griffin
decoration show him to have been a military man. The lettering is in relief
in a sunken field, a style characteristic of the region. His name Ευβωλος
is the Boiotian dialect form of Ευβουλος. No
patronymic is given.
LGPN III B Ευβωλος (8)
