Statue base of white marble found by Cyriacus of Ancona (in 1444) in the Church of John the Baptist and later rediscovered (in 1988) in excavations of the acropolis (118 x 52-69 x 43 -58 cm).
To good fortune. The Council and the People honored Publius Aelius Harpokration, also named Proclus, who built (or: repaired) the sanctuary of Tyche (Tychaion; Fortune). The Alexandrians engaged in business (pragmateuomenoi) in Perinthos set up the statue for the sake of honor.
