Altar of marble.

Dedicated to the great Sarapis, to the gods who share his temple, to the emperor Titus Aelius Hadrianus Antoninus Augustus Pius, and to Marcus Aurelius Verus Caesar. Karpion son of Anubion set up the altar for the house (oikos) of the Alexandrians from his own resources. This was done in the 23rd year on the first of the month of Pharmouthi, when Cornutus, also called Sarapion, and Polymnos, also called Longinus, and . . . were priests.
