IG II3 4 656 Date: ca. early 2nd cent. BC
For you, king, Dionysios[1] founded this temple here, a fragrant precinct and wooden statues[2] in your image and everything, having chosen not to pile up domestic wealth and silver riches, so as to pay you, Bakchos, the customary reverences; (5) in return for which, O Dionysos, be kind and preserve him, his house and his descendance, and your entire association (thiason).[3]
