Building Inscription (frag.) of a Musical Synod (after 193 CE) Pessinous - Galatia

Pessinous (Galatia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), after 193 CE
IPessinous 35 = SEG 46 (1996), no. 1630 = PHI 342645 = AGRW ID# 13525
Copenhagen Inventory info: 1958


Block of white marble used as part of a building and found during excavations of the theater in the orchestra (32 x 108 x 100 cm). Only three words are still legible on the inscription ("sacred musical Severan. . . ") but this likely involves a synod of musical performers.

Too fragmentary to translate.
