Altar of white marble decorated with flowery garlands. This spelling for an association of people from Herakleia or, possibly, devotees of the god Herakles (if this is meant to be read Ἡρακλειστᾶν) is also found in IG XII,1 158 on this site (from Rhodos). The identity of the Xousariasts is uncertain, but Wilamovitz (IG) proposed an alternate (or mistaken) spelling of Dousariasts or Thousariasts, in which case this may be an association devoted to the Nabatean god Dushara (Δουσάρης in Greek inscriptions: e.g. SEG 7:1107 from Arabia; also known as Θεὺς Ἄρης [Theus Ares] in the Suda lexicon).

(column 1) . . . Name. . . who was crowned by the Herakleians (Herakleōtai; or, less likely: Herakles-devotees) (column 2) and who was crowned by the Dushara-devotees (?; Xousariastai).
