Eubolos son of Apollodoros.

English translation

Eubolos figlio di Apollodoros.


Beschi, 1970 , p. 205, puts this base in a group dated to the 1st half of the second century B.C. This is impossible in view of the lettering (see also "IV/III" in Fraser-Matthews, 1987 , p. 172 from J.M. Reynolds' opinion).

Robinson gave no information about the provenance. Oliverio only said that it came from one necropolis. The Thorns' assumption that it was the Northern one may be due to the fact that the Norton mission had its camp in that very part of the necropoleis.
