As one of the most famous religious centers in the Aegean, the island of Samothrace was visited by thousands of worshippers between the seventh century B.C. and the fourth century A.D. All known inscriptions listing or mentioning Samothracian initiates and theoroi (a total of 169 texts) are presented. Texts that have been published before have been restudied where the original stones are still preserved, and many corrections have been made to existing readings. In addition, 23 names of theoroi and 143 of initiates have been published here for the first time, and new information about their activities on the island is presented.
