Slab of marble with ornate engraving (157 x 63 x 14 cm). See TAM V 470a for another inscription involving a sacred doumos (an expression used for an association in Lydia) from this area, perhaps the same group.

Year 308 of the Sullan era, 18th of the month of Panemos.  The sacred doumos–association honoured Aurelius Glykon son of Dionysios, first of the priests of the goddess Artemis Anaitis of our people, together with Dionysios, his son, and Chamason, his grandson, because of their service to the gods and their great benefaction towards the doumos–association (10) which they have accomplished and continue to accomplish.
