The associates (synētheis) of Herakles set this up as a memorial for Euphranor, fellow-associate, when Kotys son of Eirene was head of the gathering (archisynagōgos) and when Marcus Cassius Hermon, who is also called Demas, and Primigas, were secretaries (grammateis) and Python son of Lucilia, Thessalonian, was the supervisor (epimeletes).  Year 185, also 301, 7th day of the month of Peritios.
