Architraves from the stoa of the Berytians (inv. Ε 114 δ).

The association of Berytian Poseidoniast (Poseidoniastai) merchants (emporoi), shippers (nauklēroi), and warehousemen (egdocheis) set up the building (oikos), the stoa, and the oracles for the ancestral gods.

Translation by: Harland

τὸ κοινὸν Βηρυτίων Ποσειδωνιαστῶν ἐμπόρων καὶ ναυκλήρων καὶ ἐγδοχέων | τὸν οἶκον καὶ τὴν στοὰν καὶ τὰ χρηστήρια θεοῖς πατρίοις ἀνέθηκεν.
