Fragmentary list of ancestral initiates (πατρομύσται). This title, which probably indicates that the initiate's father had already been an initiate, also occurs in ISmyrna 731.17-18. The present inscription mentions M. Aurelius Perperes (cf. ISmyrna 634.6-8) and L. Sulpicius (cf. ISmyrna 731 and ISmyrna 600.18), dating the monument to either the time of Domitian or the years following 161 CE.

Too fragmentary to translate.
