Inscribed in Greek on and below the moulding of the arch, ‘Atimetos Son of Heraklidos paid his vow (dedicated this) to Apollo’ (add Greek). The relief must have been found with relief number 69.1256 in a sanctuary of the Anatolian god Sozon, who was identified with the Greek Apollo, normally a god of a very different appearance.
