Dedicated to Iatros and Iaso, saviour gods, by Marcus Antonius Secundus.


For other texts associating Iatros and Iaso see C.228, M.185, C.756, M.190, M.191, and Dobias-Lalou, loc.cit.

It is probably this inscription that Oliverio mentioned (loc cit above) when publishing C.228, although there he restored Ἀσκληπίωι instead of the better Ἰατρῶι
