Statue base of white marble (26 x 82 x 60 cm). Found in 1880 in the agora of the Italians (inv. Ε 87 and 88).
The Italians (Italikoi) set this up for Gaius Ofellius Ferus son of Marcus because of his righteousness and generosity towards them. This was dedicated to Apollo.
Dionysios son of Timarchides and Timarchides son of Polykles, Athenians, made this.
