Translation by: Editors

. . . natural child of Euphanes: the Cyrenaeans (honoured)


The subject is probably Pausanias, adopted son of Philiskos, natural son of Euphanes, priest of Apollo in CE 2 and in that year regarded as responsible for the successful conclusion of the Marmaric War, see GVCyr 27; but other members of the family are also possible, see on C.41.
