In the thirty–ninth year of Artaxerxes’ reign, Droaphernes son of Barakes, the governor (hyparchos) of Lydia, dedicated the statue to Zeus of Baradates (or: Baradatian Zeus).
He instructs his temple–warden therapeutists who enter into the shrine and who crown the god not to participate in the mysteries of Sabazios (10) with those who carry the burning incense (or: burnt offerings) and not to participate in those of Angdistis and Ma.
They instruct Dorates, the temple–warden, to abstain from these mysteries.
