" O God, help Alexander the general, son of Proklos."
The inscription perhaps indicates that this special room of the
Bath was used as a tomb for Alexander the General, who must have
been a man of prominence at Assos at a late period, when ancient
Greek civilization had declined to such an extent that even the use
of the baths had been forgotten.
