Rhodos on Rhodes (Southeastern islands, Aegean Islands — Pleiades map), 27 BCE-14 CE
IG XII,1 77 = PHI 138613 = AGRW ID# 12517


Broken slab of marble (46 x 34 x 24 cm). This fragmentary inscription lists some of a pentathlete's victories and the honors granted him by several groups, including an association (koinon) of Cretans settled in Rhodes and the civic Council.

Too fragmentary to translate.
