Antipatros fils d'Artémôn (a consacré ce monument) à Apollon au titre de la dîme.
Antipatros son of Artemon (dedicated this monument) to Apollo as a tithe.
Antipatros figlio di Artemon (ha dedicato questo monumento) ad Apollo come decima.
This inscription is known only from a hasty sketch in Oliverio's papers, which Pugliese Carratelli did not reproduce.
Although entering into a long series of dedications of tithe, this one has an unusual order of words: Ἀπόλλωνι δεκάταν usually stands at the end.
Pugliese Carratelli was probably right to interpret the father's name as he did; although not attested in Cyrenaica, Ἀρτέμων is well known elsewhere; as a short form of theophoric names containing Artemis' name, its use is not surprising at Cyrene; only its form has a light foreign tint, as a true Cyrenaean name would begin with Ἀρταμ(ι)-.
