Offrandes funéraires à Thespies : les ἐνπορίδια « sacrifices par le feu » dans IThesp. 215

Abstract : In this article I analyse a passage of a Thespian manumission (IThesp. 215, 3rd-2nd c. BCE), which has not been satisfactorily explained. First, the noun ἐνπορίδια must be a Boeotian form corresponding to ἔμπυρα “sacrifices by fire”, which the freed-man Soros would offer to his former masters, Ageas and Aristodama, as part of the cult of the dead. Second, I try to show that the expression παρ’ ἕτερον ἐνιαυτόν in the same document should not be interpreted with its standard meaning of ‘every two years’, but rather as ‘at one of the two anniversaries’ of the funerals of Ageas and Aristodama.
