The inscription says:

"The people of Patara has honored - with the people having introduced the motion concerning the honours for him - Marcus Antonius Idagras, son of Antiatros, citizen of Rome and of Patara, who was general of the Lycian League selected from all Lycians and ambassador on behalf of the demos and of the Lycians to the Roman Emperors and received privileges to the advantage of the League and through his request obtained the discharge of 600 fellow citizens from military service, who at the Nemia and Heraia at Argos won the boys' pankration as the first of the Lycians, and at the Romaia organized by the Lycian League every four years as isolympic games won the boys' and the teenagers' pankration, and at the Legoa organized by the Lycian Leage and at the Rhomaia at Rhodes won the boys' pankration; who also won other holy and stephanitic contests, with a golden wreath and a bronze statue, because he is an excellent man in the tradition of his ancestors."
