Copenhagen Inventory info: 919


Piece of a slab of marble found on the acropolis in 1881 (inv. II 71). The "settlers on the acropolis" may or may not be an ongoing neighborhood association (see also IPergamon 424 from the mid-second century).

The People honored Nero Claudius son of emperor Claudius.  The settlers (katoikountes) on the acropolis honored him (by taking responsibility for setting up the monument [?]).
