This article is devoted to the Chersonesos inscription iospe i 2 347, dating from c . 46 bc . An unpublished fragment found during excavations led by M. I. Zolotarev in the north-eastern area of Chersonesos in 1976 is the lower part of the said inscription and makes it possible to interpret the document as a proxeny decree relating to Xenon, son of Timotheos. Various indirect data point to the individual honoured here having originated from the South Pontic polis of Amastris.
