The present paper presents and comments on the text of an inscription from the eastern necropolis of Rhodes. In addition to attesting to five hitherto unknown private associations (koina), the inscription makes known three new toponyms, one of which might belong to an administrative unit known as ktoina. Moreover, it is argued that the new text probably provides evidence for the celebration on Rhodes of the festival Dalia.
