Eukarpos fils d'Androsthénès.
Eukarpos son of Androsthenes.
Eukarpos figlio di Androsthenes.
An officer about 330 B.C., named Εὔκαρπος Ἀνδροσθένευς at IGCyr015100, gives a clue for the restoration. The lettering is not very different and both mentions should belong to the same man. In this we disagree with J.M. Reynolds, who dated the inscription of the end of the third or the beginning of the second century.
