Gorgippia (Bosporan region, Danube and Black Sea areas — Pleiades map)
A.I. Boltunova, VDI (1986) 46-49 (no. 3) = SEG 36 (1986), no. 703 = PHI 339010  = ID# 20419

 100-125 A.D.

bibliography            

Fragment of a large plaque of white marble. There are references to financing a cult for a god, including mention of frankincense. The editors suggest this may involve a society, but no term for an association survives here.

Too fragmentary to translate.
