Altar base found in southwestern Miletos. Although the descriptor or epithet Hypsistos (“Highest,” or “Most High”) could be used of the Judean God, it was also used of other deities, as is most likely here.
The priest of the most holy god Hypsistos (“Highest”), Saviour, Ulpius Karpos, member of the Council. The station (statiōn) of gardeners (kēpouroi) opposite the city honoured their benefactor on behalf of their own salvation.
