Honors (frag.) for the High-priest of “the Whole Athletic Meeting” (220 CE) Thyatira - Lydia

Thyatira (Lydia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), 220 CE
TAM V 1020 = CIG 3501 = PHI 264451 = AGRW ID# 13009


Fragment of a marble base. This very fragmentary inscription involves honors for C. Perelius Aurelius Alexandros, who is honored as high-priest of an athletic organization. The same man is honored by another guild at Thyatira (see TAM V 1019).

Too fragmentary to translate.
