Lots more good comments Eugenios - thanks for posting! I don't recall your mentioning DeWitt's article on Organization of Epicurean Groups -- I don't have time to check it for more footnotes but it's surely relevant to this part. DeWitt's "Organization And Procedure In Epicurean Groups"
Yes Don. Some years ago I went through and downloaded from JSTOR everything I could find that DeWitt published, and there are quite a number of articles, which even today I have not found the time to read. At that time JSTOR didn't have a "free" option for non-universities, but they do today and I guess these are now more readily available than they were then. Maybe at some point we can put together at least the very least a list of links to the articles.
