TRYPHON PERFORMS AN OBEISANCE TO ISIS AT PHILAI

Greek text:   Philae_32
Date:   ? 89 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

Dittenberger suggested (with some hesitation) that this inscription belonged to the reign of Ptolemy XII, but most recent scholars have assigned it to the reign of Ptolemy X, in which case the date is March 89 B.C.   The post of idios logos {'Private Account'} was created in the 2nd century B.C., and was later taken over and adapted by the Roman rulers of Egypt.


On behalf of Kastor, the kinsman and idiologos and steward of the king and his sister and their children; I Tryphon, his fellow-ephebe and appointee, have made obeisance to the lady Isis. In the 25th year, on the 25th day of Pauni.
