Round base of blue and red marble (73cm high x 48 wide; letter height: 2.2-2.4cm).

For good fortune! The Herakles-devotees (Herakleastai)from the settlements established by Attalus and Eumenes at Mernouphyta honored Glykon Neikandros, a man who loves honor, with a gold crown.

Translation by: Harland
