Large block of marble likely serving as a base for a statue of Athena (no dimensions recorded).

To good fortune!  The guild (synergasia) of silversmiths (argyrokopoi) and goldsmiths (chrysochooi), having repaired a statue of Athena, restored her for the homeland when L. Vinicius was civic commander (stratēgountos epi tōn hoplōn).

Translation by: Harland

ἀγαθῆι τύχηι· ἡ συνεργασία τῶν ǀ ἀργυροκόπων καὶ χρυσοχόων τὴν ǀ Ἀθηνᾶν ἐπισκευάσασα ἀποκαǀτέστησε τῇ πατρίδι, στρατηγοῦνǀǀτος ἐπὶ τῶν ὅπλων Λ. Οὐινικίου.
