The most illustrious city of Priene in Ionia and its powerful Council and emperor-loving Assembly have decided, in accordance with what has often been said by them in their documents, in joint sessions of the Council and the people's Assembly and in popular decisions, to honor Marcus Aurelius Tatianus, grandson of Euschemon, great-grandson of Pollo, because of his expenditure on behalf of the city when he held office. He was a market overseer and overseer of the ceremonies for Athena Polias, temple guardian of the goddess, senior prytanis, and honored chairman of the board. Goodbye.
