The stele, collected about 1980 from the South Necropolis, is thought by Mohamed and Reynolds to come from the tomb where a rock-cut cut inscription (IGCyr008100) mentions a Βαρκαῖος Ἀστυκλεῦς. If so, the lettering of the stele seems to be somewhat older than that on the wall.
From the same tomb are also IGCyr086400 and IGCyr086500.
