1: The first surviving letter could be Μ, the last Τ or Ρ ; There appears to be an uninscribed space to the right before the stone is broken away, which suggests that we have the end of a word; but the remains are difficult to interpret if so, and more probably it continued onto the next line, as, e.g.,[Φι]λοκτ/[ήτης] or [Φι]λοκρ/[άτης] in the nominative or the genitive cases.
