Slab of marble with a partially preserved relief depicting a man with a flaming altar to the left (over which he is holding a libation bowl) and another large bowl to the right with a palm branch on either side (57 x 44 cm).
The companions (hetairoi) of the elder Ophelion and close friends (synētheis philoi) honored Sakerdotas son of Menandros the high-priest and head of the gymnasium, their own benefactor for life, who took care of setting up the statue freely on behalf of the association (koinon). Themistokles son of Lysikles, who is also called Phoibos, made this.
