Although broken off below, the stone seems not to have been inscribed below line 2. A name in -δαμος or -τιμος would be plausible for line 1 whereas line 2 should bear a father's name ending in -ης, perhaps in -κλῆς. No choice is possible amongst a lot of possibilities. As we have only a fragment and as the exact findspot is unknown, it is impossible to decide whether this inscription was funerary or honorific.
