Abstract: Let $ \theta (x;3,l)$ be the sum of the logarithms of the primes not exceeding x that are congruent to l modulo 3, where l is 1 or 2. By the prime number theorem for arithmetic progressions, $ \theta (x;3,l) \sim x/2$ as $ x \to \infty $. Using information concerning zeros of Dirichlet L-functions, we prove explicit numerical bounds for $ \theta (x;3,l)$ of the form $ \vert\theta (x;3,l) - x/2\vert < ex$, $ x \geqslant {x_0}(\varepsilon )$.
