“When Metrodoros Attalas officiated as boularchos and agonothetes in the city of the Sardians, protochthonous and sacred to the gods and metropolis of Asia, and keeper of two Koinon temples of the Augusti by virtue of the decrees of the sacred Senate, friend and ally of the Romans; when Publius Aelius Tryphon and Tatianos Eugamos, the archembatai, officiated as xystarchs: Secundus, citizen of Hypaipa and Sardis, son of Mithres bearing the second name [- -]los, (was victorious in the discipline of) wrestling.”

Summary of Herrmann’s detailed commentary:

13–14 ξυσταρχούντων (see no. 377, 11 comm.) ἀρχενβατῶν, etc.: Perhaps “the agon supervised/controlled by the ξυστάρχαι was held in honor of the deity to whom the adyton in question belonged: perhaps Kore, since the main festival of Sardis was the Χρυσάνθινα dedicated to this goddess” (SEG, after Herrmann). This testimony could support the idea of a board of xystarchai and is quoted as “énigmatique” by D. Rousset and J.-Y. Strasser, REG 2017, p. 10. In IGSK 24, 1 (Smyrna), no. 726, Κόρης μύσται σηκοῦ καὶ ἐνβάται οἱ ἐν Σμύρνῃ are on record: a privileged group of worshipers allowed to enter the adyton; cf., in the Sardian Zeus cult, οἱ εἰσπορευόμενοι εἰς τὸ ἄδυτον, no. 434, 5–7 (also Sardis VII 1, no. 22; and no. 354); J.-L. Ferrary, Les mémoriaux de délégations du sanctuaire oraculaire de Claros… I (2014), pp. 128–29.

For Allahdiyen as a possible location of Kore’s sanctuary see no. 691, 1–2 comm.
