English translation

Translation by: Charlotte Roueché

Aiglanor, (scil. son) of A[-? son] of Karnedas, serving as priest [?dedicated]


For the altar, see Oliverio, loc.cit. 128f.

Oliverio's reconstruction is without a close parallel; the restoration here follows Marengo, an alternative which corresponds with more normal practice; perhaps Αἰγλάνωρ Α[ἰγλάνορος τῶ] / Καρνήδα.
