[Year] 13, for Glaukias (scil. son) of Leonidas


The patronymic is written in small letters cut within, between and below those of the name; for the patronymic written in this way, typical of ephebic inscriptions, cf. C.61, C.123, C.124, and many examples at Ptolemais: P.2, P.11, P.13, P.14, P.69, P.91, P.124, P.133, P.134, P.178, P.182, P.185, P.190, and compare P.200.
