Decree (frag.) of an Athletic Synod Devoted to Herakles (undated) Ephesos - Ionia

Ephesos (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), undated
IEph 1084 = PHI 247721 = AGRW ID# 8246
Copenhagen Inventory info: 1804


Slab or block of blue marble with a fragmentary inscription (81 x 57 cm). Only the beginning of the decree is legible, but it seems to involve the "sacred, athletic, travelling, pious, synod of those gathered around Herakles" which is attested elsewhere.

Too fragmentary to translate.
