Title: Further Progress on I. Manisa 523
Author(s): DE LIGT, L.

This article is a sequel to my study of some legal and philological aspects of I. Manisa 523, a recently published inscription from the territory of Sardes. My rapid return to this text is largely due to the highly problematic nature of the inscription which necessarily makes of its reconstruction and interpretation a slow process. The aim of this follow-up article is to contribute to this process by submitting a number of improvements which have suggested themselves to me since the publication of my first deliberations on the subject. For clarity’s sake, it should be emphasized that my overall interpretation of the document remains more or less unchanged. In other words, my explorations in the following pages can be described as an attempt to erect a few additional walls on the foundations already laid.
