Grave (frag.) with Fines Payable to a Synod of Athletes (undated) Smyrna - Ionia

Smyrna (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), undated
ISmyrna 217 = PHI 255721 = AGRW ID# 10483
Copenhagen Inventory info: 1329


Upper piece of a tabula ansata. Only the end of the grave inscription remains and makes reference to payment of a fine (5000 denarii) for violation of the grave to the "synod (synodos) of sacred victors."

Too fragmentary to translate.
