INSCRIPTIONS OF ASSOS.

No. XXXV.

Christian inscription tipon door-jamb of one of the chambers
of the Greek Bath. Breadth, 0.585 m.

" 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.
