To good fortune, Himerius. Him, the Roman consul, the most distinguished among the Cilicians, who also on behalf of his son is the highest among the citizens – for to him the emperors gave the award that the son should share the very splendid honour to be a member of the senatorial assembly – him, Papis, who consecutively placed three very noble wreaths upon his head, that of demiurgus, that of ciliciarchus, and that of gymnasiarchus, the entirely pure jury-man, the crown of the council, noble blood; the servants of Demeter set up this glorious man. [Set up] when the men around Neon (for the second time) and Lucius (for the second time) and Alexander (for the second time) and Myragenes (for the second time) were clerks. The same clerks [provided] the meeting room from their own fortune for the sacred guild.
