bibliography            

Slab of marble found reused in the stairs of the "Green Mosque" (Yeşil Cami) in Bursa, now in the garden of the Bursa museum (39 x 105 x 18 cm; letter height: 0.9-1.4 cm). This fragmentary list of functionaries and participants in mysteries mentions a "chief-initiate" (mystarchēs, in (a) line 1), several functionaries with the title "kings" (bas. = basileis in (a) lines 4-8), a "sacred slave" (hieros, in (a) line 10), and initiates (mystai, in (b) lines 8-17 and likely continuing on (c)). At least ten participants have the three names (tria nomina) indicative of Roman citizenship.

Too fragmentary to translate.
