SEG 29 (1979), no. 1200 = PHI 277086 = AGRW ID# 2098


Slab of white marble (42 x 37 x 5). An ancestor of the deceased in this inscription may have received Roman citizenship from M. Aefulanus, the proconsul of Asia in 65/66 CE (ISmyrna 591).

The Pythians (young men, athletes, or musicians [?]) set this up for M. Aeflanus Licinianus, who lived 21 years.
