Another, similarly worded inscription reads:
[ἔτ]ους σκζʹ. Ἀρτεμίδω-
[ρο]ς Διοδότου καὶ Ἀμιας
μετὰ τῶν συνγενῶν ἐξ ἰδό-
των καὶ μὴ ἰδότων λύτρ-
ον κατὰ ἐπιταγὴν Μηνὶ
Τυράννῳ καὶ Διὶ Ὀγμην-
ῷ καὶ τοῖς σὺν αὐτῷ θεοῖς. 
ETOUS SKZ' ARTEMIDW-
[RO]S DIODOTOU KAI AMIAS
META TWN SUNGENWN EX IDO-
TWN KAI MH IDOTWN LUTR-
ON KATA EPITAGH MHNI
TURANNWi KA DII OGMH-
Wi KAI TOIS SUN AUTWi QEOIS
Year 227 (= 143 CE). Artemidoro son of Diodotos and Amias with their relatives, both those who are aware and those who are not (OR!! for things [done] awares and unawares) a ransom, [dedicated this stele] in accordance with an injunction, to Men Tyrannos and Zeus Ogmenos and the gods in his company.

I see that Adela Collins has a complete discussion of several of these inscriptions in "The Signification of Mark 10:45 among Gentile Christians" Harvard Theological Review, Vol. 90, No. 4, Jesus' Sayings in the Life of the Early Church: Papers Presented in Honor of Helmut Koester's Seventieth Birthday (1997): 371-382
