Slab of marble, broken into five pieces.

For good fortune! Year 242, twentieth day of the month of Dystros. For the salvation of lord Hadrian Gaius Cassius, son of Gaius, son of Maikia Alexandros II, head-craftsman of the barbers (koureus) . . . . The association set this up from its own resources.
