Sardis (Lydia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), 117-138 CE
ISardBR 14 = CIG 3455 = IGR IV 1517 = PHI 263125 = AGRW ID# 12750


Very fragmentary decree copied by Thomas Smith around 1670. There is mention of Hadrian as "new Dionysos", which suggests that this is another decree of the Dionysiac performers, in this case involving quadrennial contests.

Too fragmentary to translate.

Translation by: Harland
