Slab of white marble with a triangular top (pediment) decorated with a rosette. This very fragmentary honorary inscription involves the society (thiasos), who are also called Dionysiasts, honoring Hediste, who had been priestess for ten years and had made contributions to the society. The society establishes a special festival to honor Hediste with sacrifices to Dionysos and with banquets.

Too fragmentary to translate.
