Thyatira (Lydia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), undated
TAM V 1003 = IGR IV 1255 = ILydiaKP II 57 = PHI 264434 = AGRW ID# 12992


Base of marble found in a private home in Akhisar (52 x 44 x 12 cm). In this fragmentary inscription, some institution or group honors a man who was priest of Artemis, civic ambassador to the emperor, and curator of the company (conventus) of Romans, likely a group of resident Roman businessmen (cf. TAM V 1002).

Too fragmentary to translate.
