Herrmann’s text. Summary of his commentary:

This is the first altar dedicated to Hadrian that has come to light in Sardis; elsewhere such altars are attested in great quantity; see the commentary on IGSK 24, 1 (Smyrna), no. 625; and TAM V 3, 1653–1654. The fact that the title “Olympios” occurs here, but “Panhellenios” does not, leads to a date between 128/29 and 132 AD (cf. D. Kienast, Römische Kaisertabelle [21996], p. 130). The altar’s erection does not seem to have been caused by Hadrian’s visit to Sardis in 124 AD. For another visit at a later date, perhaps 128/29, there is insufficient evidence; see P. Weiß, Chiron 25 (1995), pp. 213–24; see no. 373 comm. on the date.

For the institution of a penteteric contest at Sardis in honor of Hadrian, νέος Διόνυσος, see Sardis VII 1, nos. 13–14. The inscription no. 319, 1 mentions a Hadrianeion (cf. SPRT, p. 145).
