Altar of white marble. Found in 1906. Now in the museum at Thessaloniki (inv. ΜΘ 1786).

To good fortune.  By decree of the greatest Council and by vote of the most sacred People, the fellow-worshippers (synthrēskeutai) of the renowned god, the great Sarapis, honored their patron, Publius Aelius Neikanor, the most remarkable leader of Macedonia (makedoniarchēs).  Farewell.
