Ancient face of gvcyr034 Honours for two athletes, inv. n. D420. Department of Antiquities, Shahat.

White marble base with mouldings, now much worn out, above and below; chipped off at the lower left angle and on the right edge (0.65 0.35 0.28); a small part has also been lost at the upper right angle since the discovery. A supplementary line, added above the inscribed face, is a graffito unrelated to the epigram.

The main text was inscribed on the whole face (0.52 0.24) in two columns (hereafter called 'areas') of 10 lines, with alternate inset of hexameters and pentameters; however there is practically no gap between both columns/areas at ll. 7 and 9.
