Two new inscriptions from the east cemetery of Thessaloniki
This article presents two inscriptions found in the east cemetery of Thessaloniki in 2000/2001. 1) Two joining fragments of a marble funerary stele with an engraved pediment on the top; the stele was set up on the grave of Peleigines, son of Kamrys (c. 250-150 BC). The name Peleigines is very rare, attested only in Macedonia (Pella, Mieza, Diporon). The name Kamrys was hitherto unattested, but it may be related to the name Kamreina in Athens. 2) Marble stele decorated with ivy leafs in relief. Flavia Euphrosyne and her daughter Flavia Olympias erected this stele with for Euphrosyne's husband C. Sextius Secundus and for themselves (c. AD 175-250). The nomen Sextius is attested in Thessaloniki already in the 1st cent. AD, probably among the Roman negotiatores, but the praenomen of C. Sextius suggests that he or his father owed Roman citizenship to C. Sextius Martialis, procurator in Macedonia in the late 2nd cent. AD. The fact that the daughter had the same nomen as her mother (Flavia, not Sextia) implies that the daughter was born while her father was still a slave.
