A boundary marker

This is one of the boundary markers from the Eleusinian way. Inscriptions are to a certain degree different from other classical texts: they are often randomly preserved (compared to texts, which has, or has not, been selected for copying during the millennia) and they talk very directly about something. This one simply states: boundary marker of the way to Eleusis. Ca 520 BC.
