Block of white marble found in Aydin (105 x 55 x 47 cm). The man honored in this inscription was likely a member of the Panhellenion institution at Athens, which was founded by emperor Hadrian in about 132 CE. The Panhellenion drew members from the upper echelons of Greek cities and its focus was on preserving the cultural heritage of the Hellenes.

The initiates (mystai) honoured the Panhellene, Julius Amyntianus, priest of Isis and Sarapis.
