Marble stone formerly stored in Venice.

Those who wear black (melanēphoroi) and the therapeutists (therapeutai) set this up for Gaius son of Gaius from Acharnai subdivision, priest (hiereus) in the year when Nausias was civic leader (archōn).  They dedicated this to Isis Dikaiosyne (“Righteousness”) on behalf of the Athenian People and the Roman People.

Translation by: Harland

Γάιος Γαίου Ἀχαρνεύς, ἱερεὺς γενόμενος | ἐν τῶι ἐπὶ Ναυσίου ἄρχοντος ἐνιαυτῶι, | καὶ οἱ μελανηφόροι καὶ οἱ θεραπευταὶ ὑπὲρ | τοῦ δήμου τοῦ Ἀθηναίων καὶ τοῦ δήμου τοῦ | Ῥωμαίων Ἴσιδι Δικαιοσύνηι ἱδρύσαντο.
