bibliography            

Fragment of a slab of marble (23 x 22 x 6.5 cm). The inscription is extremely fragmentary but likely refers to an association of Dionysos-devotees (Dionysiastai) gathered around a priest (hiereus). There is also mention of a chief-initiate (archimystēs).

Too fragmentary to translate.
