Of the innumerable minor shrines which were scattered over all parts of the city of Athens and its suburbs, one of the most curious is the shrine of Kodros, Neleus, and Basile. Nothing of it has been found, and its site in south-eastern Athens is only approximately known, but we have a good deal of interesting and at some points puzzling information about it, mainly from an inscription, IG i2. 94, a decree of the Boule and the Demos of 418/17 B.C. Much has been written about this decree, which amongst other things has points of chronological interest and is important in connexion with the leasing of shrines, but its topographical and architectural implications have not been fully worked out, or else have been misinterpreted. E. Curtius, who first attacked the problem after Koumanoudes's provisional publication, went so far as to draw a plan of the shrine with the catchment area from which it drew the water for its olives, in relation to the neighbouring part of south-eastern Athens; but in nearly all particulars his plan is open to serious doubt. Others, including Judeich, who merely prints ‘Neleus und Basile?’ in the region of the presumed site (his Plan I, G 7), have been more vague and cautious. IG i2. 94 will repay a little further topographical study, I believe, and several more recently found inscriptions may throw a little new but uncertain light on Basile.
