It is possible that "Dioserapitai" was the name of the ship itself, but Bricault argues that the devotees interpretation is more likely here. These are likely shippers who chose Zeus-Sarapis as patron deity.

A safe voyage (euploia) for the devotees of Zeus-Sarapis (Dioserapitai), Name. . . son of Hermodoros . . . (remainder lost).
