Those who were soldiers (hoi strateusamenoi) of the Milesians in undecked ships dedicated this to Apollo of Didyma when Artemidoros son of Demokleides was commander of the fleet and Automenes son of Autosthenes and Apollonios son of Ekphantos were leaders of ships with three sets of oars (triremes).
