Block of marble, likely a statue-base (119 x 72 x 65 cm).

For good fortune! The sacred-victors from the world (hoi apo tēs oikoumenēs hieroneikai) and the whole athletic meeting (ho synpas xystos) honored Claudius Julius Polyeidos Demosthenes from their own resources.  M. Aurelius Athenion from Argos, incredible athlete, and T. Flavius Diomedes from Smyrna, incredible kick-boxer (pankratiastēs), supervised the setting up of this monument.
