One of the series of personal names inscribed above altars rock-cut in niches; the 'owner' of the altar(s) engraved his name, but we do not known the deity to whom offerings were laid down.
Dobias-Lalou's commentary: at line 2 there was one of the many names beginning with Tima- or Timo-. At line 1, if ever nothing is lost at the beginning, the guess is not so easy.
