bibliography            

It is possible that "Dioserapitai" was the name of the ship itself, but Bricault argues that the devotees interpretation is more likely here. These are likely shippers who chose Zeus-Sarapis as patron deity.

A safe voyage (euploia) for the devotees of Zeus-Sarapis (Dioserapitai), Name. . . son of Hermodoros . . . (remainder lost).
