English translation

Translation by: Charlotte Roueché

[?Julia] the [?daught]er of [Caesar] Augustus: [--] (scil. dedicated her statue) to [?Artem]is


Lines 1-3: these lines probably contained the name either of Julia (as restored) or of Livia, [Λειουίαν] τὰν / [Καίσαρος Σεβ]αστῶ / [γυναῖκ]α.

Lines 4-6: These lines presumably contained the name and patronymic of the donor, the patronymic being a compound of Ammon (Philammon, Alammon e.g.), and at the end perhaps the name of a divinity to whom the statue was dedicated.
