Vetting Status: high
Whenever someone is found making a request [sc. for exemption] but still owing, then "the hero at Temesa" is said.
Greek Original:
*(o e)n *teme/sh| h(/rws: o(/tan tis a)paitw=n ti ma=llon prosofei/lwn eu(reqh=|, to/te le/getai o( e)n *teme/sh| h(/rws.
For "the hero at Temesa" see already under epsilon 3510; also (e.g.) Strabo 6.1.5; Aelian, Varia Historia 8.18. Temesa, in the toe-end of Italy, had a shrine in honour of the hero Polites (or Alybas), friend of Odysseus. His presence there was considered malign and the locals collected tribute for him until (in the early C5 BCE) the Olympic boxer Euthymos put a stop to this.
