Honors by Merchants and Shippers for the Priest Diognetos (ca. 106/105 BCE) Delos - Southwestern islands

Delos (Southwestern islands, Aegean Islands — Pleiades map), ca. 106/105 BCE ?
IDelos 1704 = PHI 64144 = AGRW ID# 21225


Three fragments of a cornice of white marble (70 x 5 cm; inv. Ε 1090 αβγ). If this is the same Diognetos attested in IDelos 2234, lines 19-20, then the date would be around 106/105 BCE.

The merchants (emporoi) and shippers (nauklēroi) set this up for Diognetos . . . from Melite subdivision, who was priest, because of his virtue.  This was dedicated to Apollo.
