Slab of marble, now in the Beroea Museum (inv. no. L 585). There is a framed relief under text A depicting two male figures on either side of an altar. One figure offers a libation while the other holds a scepter in his left hand and a libation cup in his right hand. V. Allamani-Souri identifies the figure on the left as Paramonos and the figure on the right as the god Dionysos (see EBGR 2009, no. 7). Beneath the frame there is a crown with the three inscribed lines of text B on either side. Like many associations, this society adopted a civic title (market-overseer) for one of its internal functionaries.
(A) In the year 141 in the month Artemisios, Paramonos son of Theogenes, having served as market-overseer (agoranomos) of the society (thiasos), set this up for Dionysos from his own resources.
(B) The association (koinon) of society members (thiasōtai) honor with a crown Paramonos son of Theogenes.
