Base found reused as building material in a monumental gate (tetrapylon) of the second or third century CE. This group devoted to Poseidon and founded by a man named Polemos most likely consisted of immigrants from Herakleia (perhaps Herakleia by mount Latmos in Caria). Several other inscriptions from Rhodes likewise refer to Herakleians.

. . . Name . . . who has been honored with an olive crown by the association of Herakleian Polemoneian devotees of Poseidon (Poseidoniasts) who are with Agathameros.
