Not completely cleaned, better than the scan. Lucius Iulius Aurelius Septimius Vaballathus Athenodorus (266-273) was a king of the Palmyrene Empire. Vaballathus is the Latinized form of his name in the Arabic language, Wahb Allat ("gift of the Goddess"). As the Arabian goddess Allat came to be identified with Athena, he used Athenodorus as the Greek form of his name.
