Description not available. From Mylasa, not Hierapolis as previously thought.

When Sextus was crown-bearer for the second time, Papias II, grandson of Straton, who is also called Diogenes, president of the athletic area for the second time, has dedicated the statue of Herakles as a thanksgiving for the guild (synergasia).
