Fragment of a slab of marble (37 x 50 x 15 cm). Although the meaning of chromenoi here is not clear and "lenders" is one possibility, it does seem likely that this is a group of people engaged in a common occupation or service in the trading-station.
The lenders (?) (or: consultants [?]; chrōmenoi) in the trading-station (emporion) honored Aristokles son of Charmippos, the market-overseer, for the sake of virtue and goodwill.
