Small altar of marble found near the sanctuary of Asklepios (64 x 26 x 20cm; letter height: 1.8cm).

For good fortune! Epiktesis daughter of Heraklas, who has served as priestess, has set up this altar for Asklepios Soter (“Savior”) and for the association (symbiōsis) of friends of the Augusti (philosebastoi) from her own resources.
