Found used as a floor stone in the theater area. This fragmentary inscription lists members of an association that engages in mysteries. Some functionaries in the group include sacrificing priests (hierourgoi) and two revealers of the sacred objects (hierophantēs). There also seems to be a sub-group of "gold-bearers," presumably for carrying images of the gods in procession. Several individuals have the tria nomina, indicative of Roman citizenship.

Too fragmentary to translate.
