(Autel) de Zeus appartenant à Euergetas.
(Altar) of Zeus belonging to Euergetas.
(Altare) di Zeus appartenente a Euergetas.
Ferri ( Ferri, 1923 Ferri, S., 1923, Contributi di Cirene alla storia della religione greca, Roma - see in bibliography , p. 14) wondered whether Εὐεργε was the beginning of a divine epithet or of a personal name. However, in this area Zeus is only called Μηλίχιος, whereas the personal name Εὐεργέτας, although not attested in Cyrenaica, is quite plausible and would fit the context better.
