iii. Worship If the interpretation of the text as a dedication to Asclepius is correct, the group may have worshipped this god.
Deities worshipped Ἀσκληπιός, Asklepios (?)


i. Comments The restoration οἱ Ἀσκληπιασταί, hoi Asklepiastai (l. 1), by ed. pr. for the name of the group is totally gratuitous and suggested on the basis of the deity to which the inscription is dedicated. However, we may also restore orgeones vel sim.

i. Private association Possible
Note Given the uncertainty about the name there is no guarantee that this was a structured association. However, the place of discovery and the cost of the monument would involve some sort of stable organisation, in the same degree as an association.
