C. Perelius Aurelius Alexandros, the outstanding and foremost member of the eternal and immortal athletes of the world-wide competitions of the Pythian Augusteian games and the anointed ambassador. The wool-workers (lanarioi) set this up in his honor when Aurelius Moschianos son of Ammianos was supervisor.
