For good luck, during the leadership (archonship) of Aischron in the month of Mounichion, in regular assembly, Dionysodoros son of Zopyros, from the Alopeke deme, proposed the motion: Whereas Krateia, having been allotted priestess for the year Aischron was leader (archon), offered both the sacrifices at the beginning of the year and offered the other appropriate sacrifices on behalf of the association (koinon). And whereas she also spread out the couch for both the festivals of Attis, and she prepared the other things correctly and reverently, neglecting nothing honorable, and she has continually acted correctly and dutifully throughout the year, serving the goddess and opening the temple on the proper days. Therefore, in order that the sacrificing associates (orgeōnes) might be seen to render thanks to those who seek contribute liberally to the goddesses and to the sacrificing associates, — for good fortune — the sacrificing associates resolved to commend Krateia and to crown her with an olive crown on account of her piety towards the goddesses and her zeal for sacrificing associates, and also to crown her during the sacrifices and to announce publicly her crowning. And the sacrificing associates resolved to inscribe this decree on a monument (stele) and set it up in front of the sanctuary.
The sacrificing associates honor the priestess Krateia.
Krateia the priestess honors Hieronymos.
