Found near the seashore.

Epaphrodeitos son of Epaphrodeitos and grandson of Heraklas dedicated this to the society (thiasos) of Leukogeitians (Leukogeitoi; i.e. perhaps inhabitants of a neighborhood) as a thank-offering for the sake of his own salvation and that of Menophilos, being successful in all my endeavors.
