Imperator Caesar M. Antonius Gordianus, Pius, Felix, Augustus, Pontifex Maximus, holding the tribunician power for the second time, consul, father of his country, to the Magistrates, Council and People of the Aphrodisians, greetings. It befitted both your ancient origins and your goodwill and friendship towards the Romans, O Aphrodisians, that you should be so disposed to my kingship as you demonstrated in your decree for me. In response to this and in recompense for your pious (loyal) attitude, I preserve your secure enjoyment of all your rights, as they have been preserved up to the time of my kingship. Claudius Hegemoneus carried out the duties of ambassador. Farewell.
