Euagoras figlio di Amometos.
Ths stone, said to have been found «face down on Northern Acropolis» ( Robinson, 1913 Robinson, D.M., 1913, Inscriptions from the Cyrenaica, American Journal of Archaeology (AJA)17, 157-200 - see in bibliography , n. 47), belongs evidently to the series of funerary steles. It is thus plausible that it had been brought there either from the Northern or from the Western Necropolis for a re-use.
