Rectangular altar, now in the Museum of Rhodes (52 x 55 x 42 cm).

(A) Grave of Dionysodoros of Alexandria, benefactor and head of the contributors (archeranistēs).

(B) Grave of Iacchos and Dionysodoros, Alexandrians, benefactors. They have been honored by the association (koinon) for benefactions and with freedom from duties of all kinds for life, and they have been crowned, with a commendation, with a laurel crown. Dionysodoros has also been honored by the association of the Helios-devotees (Haliastai) with freedom from duties of all kinds for life and with a proclamation of the honors at the burial-places, and he was crowned with a commendation at the burial-places for all time. He has also been honored by the association of Dionysos-devotees (Dionysiastai) for benefaction and with freedom from duties of all kinds for life, and he was crowned with a gold crown with a commendation for virtue. This is the work (?) of Dionysios the Alexandrian and Ithakes the Solian.
