The company (conventus) of Romans engaged in business in Asia (conventus civium Romanorum qui in Asia negotiantur) set up this statue of Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, emperor, greatest high-priest (pontifex maximus), with tribunician power for the third time, consul for the third time, and father of the fatherland.  Titus Camurius Justus son of Titus of the Quirina tribe, soldier in the legion XIII Gemina, and Lucius Manlius Maritus son of Lucius of the Collina tribe took care of this.
