Large base found in the northern part of the Rectangular (Tetragonon) Agora (100 x 72 x 65 cm; inv. Ε 300).
The merchants (emporoi) and those working (hoi ergazomenoi) in the Rectangular Market set this up for Maraeus Gerillanus son of Maraeus, Roman working as a banker on Delos, because of his generosity towards them. This was dedicated to Apollo, Artemis, and Leto. Agasias son of Menophilos, Ephesian, made this.
