Slab of marble found reused in the late antique necropolis (64 x 57 x 10 cm). The relief depicts the so-called "Thracian rider" with the horseman depicted as a hunter facing a snake-entwined tree.

To good fortune.  This was dedicated to the Hero Karabazmos (also spelled: Karabasmos) as a thanksgiving by the associates (koinonoi) who are gathered around Menandros son of Apollonios, and Theodoros son of Theodoros, Apollonios (?) son of Themistas, Philoxenos son of Philoxenos, . . . Name son of Xenon, and Artemidoros son of Artemidoros have dedicated it.
