At the south end of the stadium: various honorific inscriptions (in Greek, one mentioning M. Apuleius Eurykles) and stylised laurel wreaths celebrating the winners of sports games held in the stadium. Roman era, 2nd or 3th century AD.
Regarding Greek inscriptions during the Roman period in Anatolia:
When Rome conquered Asia Minor, the subcontinent was largely hellenised and Greek was the predominant language. Roman rule did not change this, and the numerous inscriptions in Greek, dating from the Roman period, confirm it. Some official inscriptions were written in Latin; private inscriptions in Latin are in minority.
