This inscription, which was discovered at Maresha in Israel, was first published in 2007 and 2009; it provides some new information about Heliodoros, who according to 2 Maccabees attempted to rob the temple in Jerusalem. The translation is derived from H.Cotton & M.Wörrle (ZPE,2007), D.Gera (ZPE, 2009), and C.P.Jones (ZPE,2009).
