Fragment of an honorary inscription for an athlete (listing some of his victories) set up by the provincial assembly of Asia. Lines 5-6 refer to an athletic group of "the sacred-victors and crowned victors from the world" ([ὑπὸ τῶν ἀ]πὸ τῆς οἰκουμένης ἱερονικῶν καὶ σ[τεφανιτῶν]).

Too fragmentary to translate.
