Protimo fille de Nikaios.
Protimo daughter of Nikaios.
Protimò figlia di Nikaios.
This woman's name is not attested elsewhere but has the suffix of feminine name very common in Cyrenaica. The corresponding masculine Protimos is known in other regions. The father's name Nikaios is attested in the fourth century too many times to allow any prosopographical link.
