The first expedition of Eumenes against Nabis took place in 195 B.C. (see Liv_34.29 ). The second expedition, which is not mentioned elsewhere, must have taken place in 192 B.C., the year that Nabis died.


[A] The soldiers who sailed with king Eumenes on his second expedition to Greece, dedicated to Athene Nikephoros these first-fruits of the spoils from the war against Nabis and Antiochos, when they fought on behalf of the Greeks.

[B] The council and people [repaired] and restored this offering [to Athene].

[C] King [Eumenes] dedicated this to Zeus and [Athene Nikephoros] from the spoils of [his second expedition], when he fought with the Romans [and Achaeans against] Nabis of [Lakonia].
