Slab of marble found in the southeastern necropolis (23.5 x 32 x 8 cm). Here the devotees of Athena founded a man named Diodoros honor what is likely a deceased member (from Antioch), which may suggest an association of immigrants.

This is the grave of Isidoros, Antiochian, who has been honored by the Diodoreian devotees of Athena (Athenaistai)of Lindos with an olive crown, and of his wife Dosithea (?) daughter of Olympenes.
