A marble herm (now missing its head) with the inscription engraved on the torso and around and below the genitalia. A herm, which derives its name from the god Hermes, is a plain rectangular monument with sculpted head and genitalia.
For good fortune! When Apollonides was chief-sailor, Protion was messenger, Damon was secretary, and Pythion was sacred physician, this was set up by the friends (philoi): Tauros, Hierax Moschos the younger, Neiketes son of Perigenes, Tryphon son of Neiketes, Flavius son of Zoilos – a friendship association (symbiōsis philia).
