This inscription was on the reverse side of the same slab that records Kraton's bequest to the Attalists more fully (see CIG 3069). This fragmentary text seems to be a list of some of the equipment that Kraton left to the Attalists, including materials for banquets, carpets, linen elbow-cushions, tables, a jar, a jug, a cup, a tray for cups, a lamp, a stool of ebony, a shield, and a spear.

Too fragmentary to translate.
