Grave stone of Lartian marble decorated with wreaths. This monument records the honors granted by an association devoted to a Saviour god (likely Zeus) which was founded by a man named Lysistratos.

Athanodoros, native, was honored by the Lysistrateian devotees of the Savior deity (Soteriastai) with a gold crown and with a laurel crown. Farewell, good man!

Translation by: Harland

Ἀθανόδωρος ἐγγενὴς | τιμαθεὶς ὑπὸ Σωτηριαστᾶν | Λυσιστρατεί<ω>ν χρυσέωι | στεφάνωι καὶ θαλλίνωι, || χρηστὲ χαῖρε.
