This is a very fragmentary inscription in which an association of soldiers who are here called "tent-mates" (synskanoi) honor a person for his goodwill towards the association (koinon). This was found in the area of the sanctuary of Apollo Erethimios (in the modern village of Theologos or Tholos), which was located about half-way between Ialysos and Kamiros on the northeastern coast of the island.

Too fragmentary to translate.
