Two fragments of a slab of marble (16.6 x 20 x 9 cm; 39 x 26 x 9 cm).

Of Phileinos.  To good fortune.  When Tiberius Caesar was emperor, on twentieth of the seventh month . . .  Since (?) . . . Phileinos son of Phileinos undertook the building of the portico (prothyron) of the courtyard and the courtyard itself . . . (more than two missing lines) . . . he gave some denarii, completing the doors in the doorway because of his promise.  The portico will have his name inscribed on it and a perpetual crown.  This decree will also be inscribed on a monument (telamōn) of white stone and set up in the temple (hieron) of Dionysos.  He will cover the expense to accomplish this.  And once the doors are received by the society-members, he will mount them in the portico.
