This list laid out in two columns of small characters seems to be a list of ephebes. But it is too fragmentary to allow any certainty.

Brothers were probably mentioned successively: two sons of a Dionysios and possibly three sons of a man bearing a name such as Arimmas or the Libyan name Igisan (for the inflexion of such names see Dobias-Lalou, 1999 ).
