abstract

The inscription contains a decree with which the city of Aphrodisias promises to provide military aid to the Roman proconsul Oppius, besieged in Laodicea by Mithridates’ troops. The city decides to send immediately ambassadors to the proconsul to inform him of the good disposition of the city towards the Romans and to appoint the stephanophoros Artemidorus as the military head of the contingent of auxiliary troops, which also includes paroikoi and slaves. The text ends with a declaration of absolute loyalty to Rome.
