Plaque of blue marble from Sarapis sanctuary A (Sarapieion A), now in the Delos Museum (inv. A 3061). On the collection of funds or offerings in the sanctuaries of Sarapis at Delos, see also inscriptions involving offering receptacles, or thēsauroi (e.g. IG XI,4 1247 = RICIS 202/0124 on this site).

The priest Apollonios and those of the therapeutists (therapeutai; i.e. servants of the god) who contribute (or: collect; i.e. collect or contribute funds; hoi symbalomenoi) dedicated this to Nike.
