Side (Pamphylia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), 41-54 CE
= PHI 276346
= ID# 11624
Statue base (38 x 69 x 69 cm). Another extremely fragmentary building inscription from Side (ISide 32) may be a dedication to Claudius or Nero by this same association. A further fragmentary inscription is perhaps an imperial letter to a theatrical-stage ([thy]melikē) association and, in that case, the god Dionysos is certainly mentioned. So the synod in our present inscription may also have had Dionysos as its patron deity.
The sacred theatrical-stage synod (thymelikē synodos) which is gathered around the sanctuary in Side honored Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus.
