ABSTRACT
This article reports on the rock-cut inscriptions in Deinias' grave at Timesio's farm. The Cliff Tower and farm in the Agrileza Valley north of Cape Sounion in the Laurion mining district had been investigated and identified as a 4th-century B.C. farm by J. H. Young. Each of the rupestral inscriptions reflects various aspect of rural life: an invocation to Artemis, a calendar dedicated to Hermes, the record of a land transfer, and a single name, well antedating the other inscriptions and the extant architectural remains.
