Slab of white marble with a relief of a garland beneath the inscription (39 x 34 cm; inv. P 98). The priestess Sosipatra may be identified with the priestess of Athena Nikephoros with the same name who was honored with a bronze statue in the sanctuary (IPergamon 492).

Theodotos the chief-cowherd honored Sosipatra the priestess.
