Krokos, the kinsman of King Ptolemy (VIII [?]), his sister Queen Cleopatra and his wife Cleopatra, naval-leader, absolute highest commander, and high-priest of the temples at Cyprus. The synod (synodos) of the elder warehouse-workers (egdocheis) from Alexandria honored him on account of his goodwill and justice towards their synod and towards the other foreigners, dedicating this to Apollo, Artemis, and Leto.
