bibliography            

Slab of white-grey marble with a relief depicting a man in a short tunic who holds a staff in his right hand and a snake in his left hand. Found in Kestel.

The fellow–initiates (synmystai) set this up for Rufus son of Gaius for the sake of remembrance.  He lived in an appropriate way for sixty years.
