Base of white marble (60 x 35 x 54 cm; letter height: 2.5-4.5 cm), now in the find-spot east of the lower market (agora). The name of the street may have some connection to Apollo Pasparios (see Prott and Kolbe 1902).

Those settled (hoi katoikountes) on the street (plateia) of Paspareitai honoured L. Cuspius Pactumeius Rufinus, consul, benefactor, and founder of the homeland, when Menandros son of Menandros, the dyer, and C. Julius Eutaktos were supervisors. They gave one hundred denarii and the base from their own resources.
