Fragmentary inscription on an ornate limestone coffin (sarcophagus). This family grave stipulates that fines for violation would be paid to the city of Thyatira and to a group (plēthos), perhaps of dyers (since a plēthos of dyers is attested in another inscription from this locale).

Too fragmentary to translate.
