Ephesos (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), ca. 160 CE
= PHI 249111
= ID# 8434
Block of white marble found in the middle of the orchestra of the theater (37 x 60 x 58; letter height: 3 cm). This group of instructors, like the sanhedrin of physicians, gathered in the area of the Mouseion (i.e. a building dedicated to the Muses).
The instructors (paideutai) gathered around the Mouseion honoured Publius Vedius Antoninus, Asiarch, their own benefactor and founder of the homeland.
