Inscription found on one of four high bases flanking each side of the middle part of a triumphal arch. A separate base has a relief of the honoree.

For good fortune!  The most sacred, new Baccheion (bakcheion) honored the remarkable Junius Laberius Makedon, their own revealer of sacred things (hierophantēs), and no one has opposed.  Prosper!
