Altar of blue marble (fragmentary). The front has a relief depicting a male figure with horned head (likely Pan) with a stick in each hand. The inscription appears above the relief. Ilica was located near Kotiaeion (about half way between Dorylaion and Aizanoi).

The Keiouerenian (?) initiates (mystai) dedicated this to Zeus Dionysos as a vow.
