Two pieces of a large block of white marble with the second piece reused in the plaster of the atrium of a mosque (A: 29 x 58 x 33 ; B: 98 x 57 x 33 cm; base height 13-15 cm). Bresson (IRhodPeraiaB 58) argues that the two pieces belong together. The extremely fragmentary inscription refers to various donations (in Attic acrophonic numerals) to a sanctuary of the god Asklepios, including those by members of an association (κοινόν) of society-members (θιασιταῖ) and a group that calls itself the Athenaists (those devoted to the goddess Athena).

Too fragmentary to translate.
