The very fragmentary condition of this stone does not allow any sure reading. The only clear word is δίς 'twice'. Some possibilities are given in the apparatus. But no choice can be made. The text seems to be in koine (see l. 5) and the layout and size of the letters recall some official texts such as decisions of the Lagid kings or other regulations.
