[en] The Coan epigraphical evidence to address the topic of civic priesthoods is both exceptionally large and rich. Since the publication of the Inscriptiones Graecae XII 4 in 2010, 35 inscriptions have been available, which consist of decrees of the polis regulating the sale of various priesthoods. These documents, when confronted with other types of inscriptions, such as sacrificial calendars or cult regulations, provide valuable insights into understanding the role played by the priests in the cults of the gods of the civic pantheon, as well as into the relationship between those officials and the polis which appointed them. This paper focuses on these two aspects of Coan priesthoods.
