Fragment of a monument (20 x 20 x 7.5 cm). This very fragmentary inscription involves the People of Histria honoring a priest of the gods for his benefactions. There may also be mention of the Taureasts (perhaps functionaries or devotees of Poseidon Taureos ["Bull"]) as reconstructed in the final line.

Too fragmentary to translate.
