To good fortune!  Marcus Aurelius Gaianus son of Kosanaios, the most remarkable, voluntary and unsurpassed Cilicarch on account of his high–priesthood, leader of the festival for Apollo (10) Patroos (“Ancestral”) and of Argos, and straight–forward legal representative (syndikos).  The guild (synergion) of porters (ōmophoroi) in the grain–market honoured their own patron (prostatēs) when Pomponios son of Pantagathos and Titianus son of Titianus were secretaries (grammateis) for the second time.
