Statue (?) base from Ialysos (?) found in excavation around the Palazzo del Gran Maestro. The association is most likely named after its founder, a man named Aristanax. The reference to the "Achaian city" suggests that Ialysos is in mind (cf. ILindos 441). The name of the honoree likely appeared on some other part of the base that is now missing.

The association of Aristanakteians set this up for Namewho has served as priest of Zeus Polieus and Athena Polis in the Achaian city.  This is dedicated to the gods.  Aristonidas, Selgian, made this.
