Slab of stone found in 1884 in a house (130 x 65 cm).

Farewell Chariton son of Menippos, good hero!  Farewell Menippos son of Chariton and Artemeis son of Myonides, good heroes!  The sacred-victors (hieronikai) and crowned-victors (stephanitai) from the world and the elders’ organization (gerousia) honored Menippos son of Chariton, a good man who was head of the gymnasium by himself in a glory-loving manner.

Translation by: Harland

Χαρίτων Μενίππου | ἥρως χρηστέ· χαῖρε. | Μένιππος Χαρίτωνος | Ἀρτεμεὶς Μυωνίδου || ἥρωες χρηστοί· | χαίρετε· | οἱ ἀπὸ τῆς οἰκουμένης | ἱερονεῖκαι καὶ στ<ε>φανεῖται | καὶ ἡ γερουσία || ἐτίμησεν | Μένιππον Χαρίτωνος | ἄνδρα ἀγαθὸν | γυμνασιαρχήσαντα | παρ’ ἑαυτοῦ || φιλοδόξως.
