Statue base of marble (128 x 72 x 62 cm; letter height: 2.1 cm).

Using their own resources, the dyers honoured and set up a statue of Claudia Ammion—daughter of Metrodoros Lepidas and wife of Tiberius Claudius Antyllos, who was gymnasiarch three times—priestess of the Augusti (Sebastoi) and high–priestess of the city for life, having served as director of contests (10) in a magnificent and extravagant manner with sincerity and modesty, excelling others.
