P. Euphemos and Tyllia Spendousa, the sacred object bearers (hieraphoroi) dedicated the statues of the gods that the goddess commanded: Sarapis, Isis, Anubis, Harpokrates, Osiris, Apis, Helios riding a horse and a person seeking protection beside the horse, Ares, and the Dioskouroi. The goddess and all the others around the goddess will be decorated in fine garments, but thrice-bright fine garments, as well as eighty golden leaves. They also prepared the hands of the statues and sandals for the statues, as well as copper vessels and a vessel for lustral water in front of the gateway.
