Found in Yeni Foça / Nea Foca, between ancient Kyme and ancient Phokaia. A description of the stone was not recorded by Gennadios.

Tation daughter of Straton, son of Empedon, having constructed the building (oikos) and the open–air enclosure from her own resources, granted them to the Judeans.  The synagogue of the Judeans honoured Tation daughter of Straton, son of Empedon, with a gold crown and the right to occupy the front seats.
