Abstract

The inscription reads: καὶ ταύτην τὴν / τη̃ς τ(ω̃ν) ὑδάτων / η̃ς ὁ λαμπϱ(ότατος) πατὴϱ Ἱλ / αϱἴων ἐφευ̃ϱεν / ἀϱετήν. And the virtue of this water engine, too, was invented by the illustrious Father Hilarion. The inscription is dated (on internal evidence) to the sixth century, and referred to a system of water-installation set up by a city-councillor.
