H. 60 x W. 16 cm.
|ii.||Source(s) provenance||Kyzikos (Mordmann 1879 does not provide any further information about the provenance of the stone). Now in the Kerstner Museum in Hannover (inv. no. 1871).|
|i.||Founder(s)||The formula hoi meta Andreou tou Menestratou suggests that Andreas son of Menestratos was the founder or leader of the therapeutai.|

|i.||Number||The names of fourteen therapeutai are recorded in the stele.|
|Note||All names recorded in the stele are male.|
|iv.||Status||All names are Greek, followed by the patronymic.|
Personal relations can hesitantly be discerned among the therapeutai.
Menophilos son of Theodotos (right column l. 5) is perhaps the brother of Theodotos son of Theodotos (right column l. 6)
|iii.||Worship||The dedication is addressed to Sarapis and Isis.|
|i.||Comments||Kyzikos has yielded another inscription that bears witness to another group of worshippers that were led by an individual and made a dedication to Sarapis and Isis (CAP Inv. 1333).|

|Note||The name is suggestive of a group of worshipers, who came together on the initiative of an individual. They, thus, set themselves aside from other groups of worshipers. However, it remains uncertain whether the therapeutai formed a formal and durable group or whether they formed an ad hoc group with the aim to making a dedication to Sarapis and Isis.|
