Also [sc. attested is the dative plural] lampa/si] ["for/to/with torches"].[1] Athenians celebrate three torch-festivals, at [the] Panathenaia, Hephaistia and Prometh[e]ia. Istros says that having a torch-race was something Athenians first did when sacrificing to Hephaistos, to commemorate him who grasped the use of fire and taught it to others.[2]
