Limestone with a triangular top and a base, most likely originally placed over a doorway of a small building or large room.
For good fortune! Gaius Cassius Sextus, chief-cowherd (archiboukolos), built this shrine (megaron) for the god Dionysos and for his fellow-initiates (synmystai) at his own expense.
