Letter (frag.) of the Emperor (?) to Performers (150 CE) Smyrna - Ionia

ISmyrna 599 = PHI 254908  = ID# 9986


bibliography            

Fragment of a slab of blue marble (26 x 36 x 4 cm). This fragmentary inscription seems to be an imperial letter to the performers (technitai). Tiberius Claudius Eutychos is also mentioned (cf. ISmyrna 302)..

Too fragmentary to translate.
