Pedestal of white marble for a statue found in the sanctuary of Aphrodite. Still in the temple area in 1961.

The association (koinon) of Cilicians stationed on the island set this up for Helenos, “cousin” and attendant (tropheus) of the king, governor (stratēgos), and high-priest of the island, on account of his generosity towards the association.

Translation by: Harland

τὸ κοινὸν τῶν ἐν τῆι νήσωι τασσομένων | Κιλίκων Ἕλενον τὸν συγγενῆ καὶ τροφέα | τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ στρατηγὸν καὶ ἀρχιερέα | τῆς νήσου φιλαγαθίας ἕνεκεν τῆς εἰς ἑαυτό.
