The association (koinon) of Hermogeneian Aphrodite-devotees (Aphrodisiastai) honored Hermogenes of Phaselis with a praising commendation, with a crown of olive, with two gold crowns, with a bronze image, with the title of benefactor, and with a proclamation of the honor in the meetings (synodoi) forever on account of his virtue, goodwill, and love of glory. . . towards us (?).

Translation by: Harland

[Ἑρ]μογένη Φασηλίταν | τὸ κοινὸν τὸ Ἀφροδισιαστᾶν Ἑρμογενείων | ἐτίμασε ἐπαίνωι καὶ θαλλοῦ στεφάνωι καὶ | χρυσέοις δυσί, εἰκόνι χαλκέαι, εὐεργεσίαι, | ἀναγορεύσει τᾶν τιμᾶν ἐν πάσαις ταῖς || συνόδοις εἰς τὸν ἀεὶ χρόνον | [ἀρ]ε̣τ̣[ᾶ]ς̣ ἕ̣ν̣[ε]κ̣α καὶ εὐνοίας [καὶ] φιλοδοξίας καὶ | [— — — τᾶς εἰς αὐτό].
