The most sacred guild (ergasia) of wool-cleaners (erioplytai) honored Tiberius Claudius Zotikos Boas, the foremost civic commander, honor-loving director of contests and secretary of the temples which are in Asia, esteemed ambassador, high-priest, and benefactor of the homeland. The erection of this monument was planned by the associates of Marcus Aurelius Apollonios Pylon son of Marcus Aurelius Apollonios, Marcus Aurelius Ammianos son of Ammianos and grandson of Ammianos Glykon, and Aurelian Arruntianus son of Hermippos.
