This inscription is one of the earliest documents to mention Ptolemaic officials in the south of Asia Minor.   The translation is adapted from A.Meadows & P.Thonemann, in "The Ptolemaic Administration of Pamphylia" (ZPE, 2013), who propose some alterations to the Greek text that was originally published by L.Robert in 1966.



In the fifth year of the reign of Ptolemaios son of Ptolemaios, in the month of Audnaios; a full assembly was held; when Myresis son of Orgimotos, Midas son of Klato... and Polyarchos son of ...es were judges {dikastai}; with good fortune it was resolved by the city of Termessos: since Philippos of Macedonia, the son of Alexandros, having been appointed . . . of Pamphylia by king Ptolemaios . . . worthily . . .
