AN EPIGRAPHICAL JOURNEY
This inscription was erected in the ninth year of Trajan. It informs
us that Zeus Epikarpios was worshipped here ; indeed, in so fertile a
plain, we should naturally expect to meet with the cult of some god
of the harvest.
In 2 h. 47 m. from Tasholuk we regain Goksun, and pass on,
going up the valley of the Tolbuzek Su, and reaching Mehemet
Beikieui in i h. 22 m. from Goksun.
MILLIARIA ON THE ROMAN ROAD FROM COMANA TO COCUSSUS.
On this excursion from Goksun to Yalak, which is only six miles
from Shahr, we found a number of milliaria, and thus were enabled
to trace the Roman road from Comana to Cocussus in its entire
Mchcmct Bcikiciti, one hour to the northeastward of Gokstin.
Milliarium defaced by the action of water. In the ceme-
tery. Sec my Preliminary Report, p. 23, No. 19. Copy.
Two inscriptions, the one of Diocletian-Maximian, the other of
Klagabalus [perhaps], are hopelessly mixed up together. The
restorations must be the same as in the other inscriptions of those
emperors in this series. Compare No. 323 especially.
