Copenhagen Inventory info: 1922


Fragment of a plaque of Lartian marble (32 x 24 x 9.5 cm). This extremely fragmentary inscription refers to an association of Zenoniasts (Zenoniastai), presumably a group founded by a man named Zenon or a group honoring a man named Zenon as a hero (see also IRhodPC 6 on this site).

Too fragmentary to translate.
