Robert, BE 1962, 273. - “For goldsmiths as relatively well-to-do craftsmen and, occasionally, as members of the council,” SEG 51 refers, e.g., to SEG 36, 970; SEG 37, 843; SEG 41, 1840; and SEG 45, 1608–1611; see also Ameling’s commentary.

2–3 εὐχὴν ἀπ[έδ]ωκα: this expression is not infrequent in pagan “confession inscriptions” and other dedications, see nos. 457, 3–4 and 461, 5–6.
