Altar of marble found reused in the construction of a shrine to Saint Demetrius (east of the main street in Hagios Mamas).

Aelianus Neikon, the head of the synagogue (archisynagōgos) of the hero god, and the association (kollēgion) erected the altar for Vibius Antonius. His son-in-law, Axidares, set up this panel.

Αἰλιανὸς Νείκων | ὁ ἀρχισυνάγωγος | θεοῦ ἥρωος καὶ τὸ | κο<λ>λήγιον Βαιβίῳ || Ἀντωνίῳ ἀνέστησεν | τὸν βωμόν. | τὸν δὲ πίνακα ἀνέ|στησε γαμβρὸς αὐτοῦ | Ἀξιδάρης.
