The Koressos neighbourhood acts on behalf of the civic institutions of Ephesos in setting up a statue of Publius Vedius Papianus Antonius (Vedius II).

For good fortune. The Council and the People of the first and greatest metropolis of Asia, the city of the Ephesians, twice temple-warden of the revered ones (Augusti), honoured Publius Vedius Papianus Antoninus, the most excellent senator and president of the games for life, kin of those who supported the great festival for Hadrian (Hadrianeia), benefactor of our ancestors and descendents, and restorer of our homeland. The inhabitants of Koressos from the entrance as far as the stadium set up the honor.
