Honors (frag.) by Porters for M. Aurelius Thelymitres (late II CE) Miletos - Ionia

Miletos (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), late II CE
Wolfgang Günther, "Ehrungen für einen milesischen Periodoniken," in Studien zur alten Geschichte (Rome: Giorgio Bretschneider Editore, 1986) 1.322-323 (no. 1) = SEG 36 (1986), no. 1052 = AGRW ID# 12210


Fragment of a block of white-gray marble found in 1903 (23 x 22 x 9 cm). In this heavily reconstructed inscription, it is likely a guild of porters (sakkophoroi) that honors the athlete Thelymitres (see IMilet 939).

Too fragmentary to translate.
