Boundary stone found in Stratonikeia (Caria, west Asia Minor).

Discussion

The inscription indicates boundaries of a church of the unnamed Apostles. The sanctuary is otherwise unattested. Though this inscription does not say so explicitly, boundary stones were usually bestowed upon sanctuaries by emperors. Dating: 6th c. (?), based on similar boundary stones authorised by 6th c. emperors.
