bibliography            

Orkistos (Alikel) was located southeast of Dorylaion, about 23 km north of Amorion and about the same distance southwest of Pessinous in Galatia.

The heirs of the neighborhood of the property, Aurelius Papas son of Antiochos and Aurelius Apellas son of Alexandros, with all the members of the brotherhood (phratoroi) around them set this up for the god in fulfillment of a vow on behalf of the fortune, victory and eternal endurance of our lord (the emperor).
