Cylindrical altar of white marble (94 cm high). The term bennos may, as Drew-Bear argue, be a north Phrygian term for an "association." On the other hand, B. Levick and S. Mitchell suggest that bennos was more likely a term for a cult object or statue of some sort (see the notes to MAMA X 222 for this interpretation).
Tryphon son of Meniskos dedicated this to Zeus and to the devotees of Bennios (benneitai).Translation by: Harland
