Part of a column. Phratra is a Greek term used in Lydia for an association (rather than a civic division, usually spelled phratria).

The brotherhood (phratra) which is around Dionysodotos dedicated this column to Zeus Soter (“Saviour”) and Ktistes (“Founder”).

Translation by: Harland

Διὶ Σωτῆρι καὶ Κτίσǀ<τ>[ῃ ἡ] φράτρα ἡ περὶ Διǀο[ν]υ<σ>[όδο]τον τὸν κίǀονα ἀνέθηκαν.
