Probably a statue base of white marble like ISmyrna 653. On the role of theologians, see the description of ISmyrna 653.

Female Name … and Agapomene, well–born sisters … and the … of the girls …, the theologians (theologoi) who have been crowned together for … the dancing, and everything which they zealously offered with respect to piety towards the goddess and the festival of the initiates.  This was done by their mother Claudia Agapomene, who also set up the honours for her children.
