Fragment of a base of white marble (20 x 46 cm). The association of contributors (eranistai) that set up these posthumous honors for two members was devoted to a Savior god, perhaps Zeus, and founded by a man named Lysistratos.

(column 1) . . . Name, a good man (?) . . . . farewell!

(crown)

(column 2) . . .  Name , a good man, farewell!  And farewell to you contributors (eranistai).

(along the bottom) . . . who have been crowned by (?) . . . the Lysistrateian devotees of the Savior deity (Soteriastai) with a crown of olive branches.
