Fragment of a block of marble. This fragmentary inscription refers to honors (a gold crown) by an association of Athenaists (devotees of the goddess Athena) in response to the goodwill of a benefactor (whose name is not preserved). The benefactor had been secretary, military commander and commander of a ship with three sets of oars (a trireme) in the navy. He had also paid for a choral-contest in which the tragedians won. The inscription finishes with a dedication "to the gods."

Too fragmentary to translate.
