This inscription belonged to a statue, which was probably set up around the time when Lydiadas was killed during the war against Kleomenes, in 227 B.C. The award of a statue by the city has led some scholars to suggest that Lydiadas (or rather his father Eudamos) was a native of Kaphyai.
The city of Kaphyiai honours Lydiadas son of Eudamos, on account of his virtue and his goodwill towards the city.
