Pedestal for a statue found in the sanctuary of Aphrodite. This is one of three statues (one for Theodoros, one for his wife, and this one for his son) that shared one continuous pedestal (see Mitford, nos. 79-80 on this site).

. . . Name, of the first friends (?), . . . son of Theodoros, “cousin” of the king, governor (stratēgos), commander of the fleet (nauarchos), and high-priest.  The association (koinon) of Lycians stationed on the island set this up.
