= PHI 64144
= ID# 21225
Three fragments of a cornice of white marble (70 x 5 cm; inv. Ε 1090 αβγ). If this is the same Diognetos attested in IDelos 2234, lines 19-20, then the date would be around 106/105 BCE.
The merchants (emporoi) and shippers (nauklēroi) set this up for Diognetos . . . from Melite subdivision, who was priest, because of his virtue. This was dedicated to Apollo.
