To good fortune.  Decree of the Council.  The ancient Baccheion (Baccheion; i.e. group or temple devoted to Dionysos) honored Flavia Lais, wife of Titus Flavius Maximus and daughter of Gaius Quartius Proclus, and Flavia Apollonia, daughter of Maximus and Lais, for the sake of goodwill when Zosimos son of Nymphaios was high-priest (archiereus).
