AGRW 225 = IDelos 1786 = PHI 64226 = AGRW ID# 21606


Base of blue marble (87 x 46 x 35 cm). Found in 1904 in the house to the east of the Berytians' meeting-place (inv. Α 3044). Another very fragmentary inscription may likewise make mention of this benefactor (IDelos 1787).

Demetrios son of Apollonides (or: Apollonios), benefactor, set this up on behalf of himself and his wife, Posidonis.
