The battle commemorated by this inscription at Pergamon is probably the victory over Prousias and Ortiagon that led to thanksgiving at Telmessos ( THI_116 ). The Lypedron, where the battle was fought, is otherwise unknown; Dittenberger suggested it might be the same as Mount Lyparos, where king Zipoites founded a city ( Memnon_12'5 ).
Attalos son of king Attalos dedicated this to Zeus and Athena Nikephoros from the battle against the Bithynians and Galatians near the Lypedron.
