Slab with a gable and a fragmentary inscription. See IEph 1595 for a group of initiates devoted to Dionysos Phleos; the present inscription may have some connection to that association. C. Licinius Maximus also appears in IEph 1022, 1385, and 3066.

Gaius Licinnius (?). . . Maximus son of Julianus was priest of the Eleusinian deities for life . . . Flavius . . . (remainder lost).
