Base (of a statue?) of blue-grey marble.

M. Fulvius Publicianus Neikephoros, friend of the Augusti, esteemed Asiarch for the four days (of the gladiatorial contests [?]), civic president (prytanis), secretary of the People, and many times director of contests, preparing many great works for our homeland.  The clothing-dealers (heimatiopolai) engaged in business (pragmateuomenoi) in the market-place honored him because of his goodwill towards the homeland.
