 ca. 145-132 BCE


This inscription was on the reverse side of the same slab that records Kraton's bequest to the Attalists more fully (see CIG 3069). This fragmentary text seems to be a list of some of the equipment that Kraton left to the Attalists, including materials for banquets, carpets, linen elbow-cushions, tables, a jar, a jug, a cup, a tray for cups, a lamp, a stool of ebony, a shield, and a spear.

Too fragmentary to translate.
