Statue base found in the ruins of the temple of Dionysos.

The initiates (mystai) of the god Dionysos Setaneios (“of the New Crop”) honored their benefactor by family tradition Tiberius Claudius Pius Pisoninus son of Italicus, the Asiarch, as a thanksgiving.  Titus Aurelius Georgos Attalianos, who pursues honor in every way, has covered the cost for the statue and the altar from his own resources.
