Theodoros son of Seleukos, “cousin” of the king (?) . . ., governor (stratēgos), commander of the fleet (nauarchos), and high-priest.  The association (koinon) of Ionians stationed on the island and the fellow members of the corporate body (synpoliteumenoi) set this up because of his benefactions for the association.
