This inscription was found on one of the three bases commemorating the victories of Attalos I; the other two were inscribed with OGIS_269 and OGIS_273-279. This base probably carried an equestrian statue of the king. The king repaid the compliment by dedicating a statue of Epigenes on the island of Delos ( IG_11.4.1109 - Greek text ).
This statue of king Attalos was dedicated by Epigenes and the commanders and soldiers who took part in the battles against the Galatians and Antiochos, as a thank-offering to Zeus and Athene. The work of Epigonos.
