bibliography            

Block of white marble. Now in the museum in Milas. Exact provenance unknown. Also see EGBR (2004), no. 26. This fragmentary building inscription which refers to Dionysos seems to involve a building used by a Dionysiac group. The inscription refers to architraves with reliefs of Bacchic scenes (perhaps the depiction of a Dionysiac society, according to Chaniotis in EGBR), as well as woodwork.

Too fragmentary to translate.
