The leaders and the corporate body (politeuma) of the Judeans in Berenike resolved to engrave his name in the . . . and to be free from services (leitourgia) of every kind. Likewise they resolved to also crown him with an olive crown and wool ribbon at each meeting (synodos) and new moon. Now after they have engraved the decree on a monument of white Parian stone, let the leaders (archontes) place it in a conspicous place in the amphitheater.
