This inscription was carved on the same stone that contains SEG_43.212A, and it can therefore be assumed that dedications were made to the same temple - the temple of Demeter and Korē at Tanagra. For a summary of the contents of the inscription, see C. Brøns, "Textiles and Temple Inventories. Detecting an Invisible Votive Tradition in Greek Sanctuaries", pp.48-50 ( academia.edu ).   The translation is taken from "Gods and Garments: Textiles in Greek Sanctuaries in the 7th to the 1st Centuries BC", by the same author, appendix 2.1 ( Google Books ).
