Statue base (32 x 86 x 82 cm). In the Delos Museum in 1937 (inv. Ε 570). The Italians and Greeks here likely formed an association of businessmen (as attested in other Delian inscriptions).

Italians and Greeks set this up for Lucius Cornelius Lentulus son of Severus, treasurer (tamias; i.e. likely quaestor) of the Romans.

Demostratos son of Demostratos, Athenian, made this.

Λεύκιον Κορνήλιον Σερουίου υἱὸν Λέντελον | ταμίαν Ῥωμαίων, Ἰταλοὶ καὶ Ἕλληνες. | Δημόστρατος Δημοστράτου Ἀθηναῖος ἐποίει.
