(La statue de) Kallimakhos fils de Lysimakhos a été consacrée par Lysimakhos fils de Lysis après qu'il eut acccompli la telesphoria d'Artémis.
(The statue of) Kallimachos son of Lysimachos was dedicated by Lysimachos son of Lysis, after having accomplished the telesphoria of Artemis' feasts.
(La statua di) Kallimachos figlio di Lysimachos è stata dedicata da Lysimachos figlio di Lysis, dopo che aveva completato la telesphoria di Artemide.
At the end of l. 3, the restoration of the formula is sure and gives a clue for the number of letters lost at end of l. 2, where Oliverio's restoration is obviously too long. We suggest the very common name Λῦσις, which is coherent with the names on use in that family. If we are right, the dedicant was not the brother of the honoured man, as Oliverio's restoration would have implied. He might rather be his father.
