. . . Annianus, emperor-loving Asiarch, high-priest of the Augusti (Sebastoi), the best of the most magnificent people of Asia, foremost in the homeland, rhetor, and lawyer.  The linen-weavers (linourgoi) set this up, honoring him because of the benefactions he accomplishes for his own homeland, the most brilliant, most eminent, and great city of the Thyatirans.   This was done when Aurelius Eutychianos Asklas was supervisor . . . (final line and a half not discernible).
