bibliography            

This fragmentary honorary decree was for a woman whose name is lost. The reference to the role of "sacred-object-bearer" (hieraphoros) suggests that this was an association devoted to Egyptian deities. The inscription also refers to the role of sēkobatēs.

Too fragmentary to translate.
