Abstract

A block found at Halikarnassos can be identified as having
belonged to a moneybox (thesauros). Inscribed with an unpublished,
modest dedication to Sarapis and Isis, the text raises several questions
about the context of the find, which, for the most part, must remain
unanswered. Nevertheless, it is probable that the thesauros was
erected in a - if not the major - sanctuary of the Egyptian gods at
Halikarnassos. which can lead to a renewed consideration of its
development (probably as a result of private initiative) and its location
in the ancient city (likely in or near the Türkkuyusu quarter of modern
Bodrum).
