Monument on a column in the great colonnade. On the typical caravan routes used by Palmyrene merchants, see the description of IOriente 83.
This is the statue of Julius Aurelius Zebida, son of Moqimu, grandson of Zebida, and great grandson of Astor, son of Bayda. The merchants that went down with him into Vologesias set this up in his honor in the month of Xandikos in the 558th year.
(Palmyrene translation follows).
