i. To Ampelios, learned in law, sweet father of his motherland, we Nymphs are grateful, because he gave wonder and splendid beauty to [this] place of palms, so that anyone who, among our waters, turns his glance around, may always sing the praise both of him, and of the place, and of the Nymphs as well. Pythiodoros, the speaker from Tralles, wrote this. ii. Doulkitios, [founder] of Aphrodisias, raised up this [work] also [...]; he [was unsparing] of wealth for the sake of good reputation, which is [a permanent] memorial for mortals. iii.: Stranger, sing of Doulkitios, the governor, giver of games and founder and lover of honour and Maioumarch, who, stretching out his strong hand, raised me too, who had suffered for unnumbered years.
