Ancient (extant) copies of the same documentary text

An inscription of 111 BC that reports the decision of judges from Magnesia on the Maeander about dispute between Hierapytna and Itanos (SIG 685) is known both from a Cretan (ICr.3.4.9) and from a Magnesian stone (McCabe, Magnesia 160).
See also: Sh. L., Ager,  Interstate Arbitrations in the Greek World, 337-90 B.C., Berkeley - Los Angeles - London, 1996: (no.) 158.
 LSJ s.v. φιλονικίᾱ cites 'SIG 685.12, 36 (Magn. Mae., ii B. C., found in Crete)'.
