Description:   Inscribed blocks.
Blocks of the "Tiberius Monument".
ΣΑ 214 a), the block complete save minor chips; surface rather worn.
At the left edge of the block several large letters, clearly the ends of several lines of an inscription the main part of which was on the adjacent block IG II2, no. 4209, which now lies in the doorway of room 9 from the south of the Stoa of Attalos.
ΣΑ 623 b), corners and edges damaged, but essentially complete.
A corner block with finished left side; anathyrosis at right.
A single letter, preserved in upper right corner of block. Although it is a trifle larger and somewhat more carefully cut than the other letters of the monument, there seems little doubt that it is the first letter of the first line, the slight differences to be explained by the fact that it is the first letter.
Hymettian marble.
