This article introduces three new Greek inscriptions found in Perge during the excavation seasons of 2012 and 2015, which were carried out by the Antalya Museum. The fust inscription has 2 columns and it is noticed that the father, whose name is unknown in the first column, C. Ateius Aelianus Capito, thought to be an Italic family, erected the statue of his wife and then the son Capito honored the mother (?). The second one is an house altar set up by Soupatros for his propator Serenos. The last one is a fragment found in 2012, for that a completion proposal is made. The proposal is that the inscriptions may be an honorary inscription that belongs to C. Mitts Cornutus Bryoninus, a member of the Iulii Cornutii of Perge.
