In Boeotia during the late Hellenistic period, the accounts of festivals were often engraved on stone; see for instance SEG 25.501.  This inscription shows how officials had to deal with various forms of currency. In this instance, there were three different currencies: Attic silver, symmachikon ('allied' - also silver), and bronze. For a summary of what is known about symmachikon, see S. Psoma, "À propos des drachmai argyriou symmachikou" ( PDF ). 

The inscription was published with a French translation and commentary by C. Brélaz , A.K. Andreiomenou & P. Ducrey, "Les premiers comptes du sanctuaire d'Apollon à Délion et le concours pan-béotien des Delia" ( Persée ).



When Agasias was archon at Orchomenos, and Theochares was archon at Tanagra; accounts rendered by the agonothete Damon of Orchomenos, son of Ariston.
