[en] In the sacrificial calendar of the Marathonian Tetrapolis (SEG 50, 168), the term telete in the dative has been interpreted in past and current scholarship as the personification of the noun designating a “mystic celebration”. This occurrence of telete would accordingly not allude to a ritual process, but rather to the goddess Telete receiving an offering. The present paper aims at confronting this interpretation with a reappraisal of the evidence concerning the divinisation of Telete–in literature, iconography, epigraphy. The analysis shows that the 10th line of the calendar (second column), containing the entry in question, must refer to a ceremony–whatever its precise character may have been–and not to a deity
