Honors (frag.) by Porters Devoted to Hermes for M. Aurelius Thelymitres (late II CE) Miletos - Ionia

Miletos (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), II CE
Wolfgang Günther, "Ehrungen für einen milesischen Periodoniken," in Studien zur alten Geschichte (Rome: Giorgio Bretschneider Editore, 1986) 1.323-325 (no. 2) = SEG 36 (1986), no. 1053 = AGRW ID# 12212


Piece of a block of white-gray marble (22 x 24 x 16 cm). In this heavily reconstructed inscription, it may be the porters (sakkophoroi) devoted to Hermes (Hermaists) that honor the athlete Thelymitres.

Too fragmentary to translate.
