 II BCE

bibliography            

This very fragmentary inscription refers to a group of "Tauriasts" (Tauriastai) who here pass a decree crowning a benefactor in connection with "Taureian celebrations" for Poseidon Taureios (i.e. Poseidon to whom you sacrifice bulls). See also IHistria 57 (decree honoring Aba) and IHistria 61 on this site.

Too fragmentary to translate.
