Base of white marble found south of the theater in 1884 (25 x 55 cm). The settlers on the acropolis may or may not be an ongoing neighborhood association. The settlers on Paspareitai street also honored the consul Rufinus (see IGR IV 425). For more about Rufinus, see PIR ² C 1637.

The settlers (katoikountes) on the acropolis honored Lucius Cuspius Pactumeius Rufinus, priest of Zeus Olympos and founder of the homeland.
