In the year that Lykeas was civic leader (archōn), on the 8th day of the month of Skirophorion, in the regular assembly, Sosias son of Hippokrates made the following motion: Whereas Eukleides, who was chosen as secretary (grammateus) has for many years managed in a proper and upright manner those matters that were made his responsibility by the laws, showing himself to be blameless, and whereas he gave an accurate account in regard to the things he managed. For good fortune, it was resolved by the sacrificing associates to commend Eukleides son of Antimachos and to crown him with an oak wreath on account of the ambition and honesty that he has exhibited with respect to the sacrificing associates. The secretary shall inscribe the decree on a monument (stele) and set it up in the temple, and the treasurer shall pay . . . drachmas. . . .Written/translated by: Kloppenborg
