The construction ἐν + accusative is a ghost in the dialect of Cyrene. The local inscriptions overwhelmingly attest to ἐς + accusative. A few alleged occurrences of this feature must be discarded. The only valid example, ἐν στάλ[αν] | λυγδίναν in the ‘Pact of the first settlers’ (seg 9.3, 16-7, 4th c. bce), remains an anomaly that calls for a justification. The paper tries to demonstrate that the co-occurrence of ἀναγράφω/καταγράφω ἐς + accusative and ἀναγράφω/καταγράφω ἐν + dative resulted in an unintentional blending of both constructions.

Thumb and Scherer 1959§ 238.6b and 247.6b. In the inscriptions of Aigosthena in the Megaris ἐν + acc. is a Boeotian feature (see Maquieira 1992).

Dobias-Lalou (1994) read [ἐς τὰν Λιβ]ύαν (.26). As it happens Oliverio’s edition (on which seg 9.3 and ml no. 5 are based) presents ἘΣ ΤΑΝ the capitals representing letters that are uncertain (the photograph given by Oliverio at Table xii is useless in this case).

See Oliverio 1928223 (his own notation): (Δ)ᾶμις (2) (Θ)ήραθε (6) κατ(ο)ικίξασι ἐμμένοντ(α)ς (8) ὕστερ(ο)ν (32) ἀδιέ(ω)ς (36) ἀδελφε(ό)ς (39) ἐποιήσαντ(o) (42).
