Slab of white marble found in Rhegion, now in the Istanbul archeological museum (inv. no. 4799; 90 x 63-66 x 9 cm). A gymnasium-director's crown, palm branches and vessel for oil are depicted in relief.
When the goddess Hera was official of the sacred (i.e. eponymous official of Byzantion) and Lollia Catulla daughter of Quintus was her (i.e. Hera’s) sacrificing official for the second time from her own resources, in the month of Bosporios, the initiates (mystai) of Dionysos Kallon honored the gymnasium-director, Crispina daughter of Aischylos, who was gymnasium-director in an extravagant and noble manner.

ἐπὶ ἱερομνάμονος θεᾶς Ἥρας, ἱεροποιοῦ δὲ | αὐτῆς τὸ δεύτερον ἐκ τῶν ἰδί|ων Λολλίας Κοΐντου θυγατρὸς | Κατύλλης, μηνὸς Βοσπορίου || οἱ μ[ύσται] Διονύσου Κάλλωνος | ἐτείμ[ησαν τ]ὴν γυμνασίαρχον | Κρισπεῖναν Αἰσχύλου γυμνασιαρχήσασαν | πολυτελῶς καὶ καλῶς.
