Fragment of a block of limestone, found reused in the Turkish school (15 x 48 cm). The honoree was from Patara, perhaps the harbor-town by that name in Lycia, near Xanthos (but there is at least one other known Patara in Pontus).

. . . Name from Patara, having been crowned by the devotees of Aphrodite (?; Aphrodisiastai) and the Savior deity (Soteriastai) with a crown of olive and with gold, . . . to Apollo Dalios.
