A photograph in Archives of the Department of Antiquities at Cyrene (F1837) shows this stone with the mention «nella zona degli altarini», which is exactly the so-called 'agorà degli dei', West of the Strategeion, where Dobias-Lalou saw it in 1977 and again in 1983. It may thus be inferred that Morelli's «Ad est dello Strategeion» is a slip of the pen for 'ovest'. Besides, the mention on the photograph is a clue for the find dating from the Italian period, before World War II.

Aristippa was probably either the wife of the mother of Theudoros.
