Round base of Lartian marble. These honors are granted by an association devoted to the Dioskouroi (Dioscuri) gods, Castor and Pollux, with the group being founded by a man named Philokrates.

Nikagoras son of Nikagoras and adopted son of Peisias, priest of Athena Lindia, Zeus Polieus, and Artemis who is in the village of Kekoia. The association (koinon) of the Philokrateian devotees of the Diokouroi gods (Dioskouriastai) honored him on account of his piety, goodwill, and benefaction towards them, dedicating this to the gods.  Charmolas son of Artemidoros, Rhodian, made this.
