Copenhagen Inventory info: 696


Broken marble monument with a damaged relief of a male figure (Dionysos?) and an animal (15 x 27 x 10 cm). The very fragmentary inscription refers to a donation to the association or common fund (koinon) and mentions a priest (hiereus) and a "father of the company (speirē)."

Too fragmentary to translate.
