Inventory Number:   I 6968
Section Number:   Ι 1687
Title:   Marble Fragment
Category:   Inscriptions
Description:   Inscribed fragment.
The block was apparently first used as an orthostate; it has good anathyrosis on its right edge; had a moulding across the top of its face, and a clamp cutting in its top leading to the right. In a reuse the left side was roughly cut away and moulding removed.
The inscription occurs in a panel, slightly depressed, just below the moulding.
Probably twelve lines of the inscription preserved.
The inscription appears to have been deliberately but not very carefully erased.
Notes:   Recognized June 1962.
Context:   Removed from late Roman Fortification tower, opposite the church of the Holy Apostles in 1959.
