A complete stele with flat top. Sides roughly dressed except at front edge. Back roughly worked and very irregular. The inscribed surface has been carefully re-dressed with a toothed chisel and this process has removed almost all the letters.

At the bottom near the middle one can still read quite clear a small part of the text. A few letters can be made out here and there in other places including some figures.
Pentelic marble.
