In the year that Euboulos was leader (archon), in the month of Anthesterion, Kephalion of Herakleia proposed the following motion: Whereas Soterichos of Troizen has continued to be ambitious towards the society-members (thiasōtai) in the times past and was chosen by the society-members in the year that Nikias was leader (archon); and whereas he has managed honorably and ambitiously the building of the “house”. For good fortune, it is resolved by the society-members to commend Soterichos of Troizen on account of the good will and zeal that he has shown towards the society-members and to crown him with an olive wreath; and that whoever happens to have been chosen priest at that time when the society-members sacrifice or make drink offerings shall crown Soterichos with an olive wreath and shall make an announcement because of the zeal he has shown towards the society-members. This is so that it shall be apparent to all society-members who might wish to be ambitious for the common good of the society-members. If the priest does not crown him or make the announcement exactly as has been written, let him pay 50 drachmas immediately, sacred to the Mother of the Gods. This shall belong to the society-members just as also the other monies that are owing. This decree shall be inscribed on a monument (stele).
Leukon proposed the following motion: Whereas Kephalion of Herakleia, who was chosen priest in the year that Nikias was leader (archon), in the month of Boedromion, has supervised both the affairs of the temple of the Mother of the Gods and the society-members honorably and ambitiously; for good fortune, it was resolved by the society-members to commend Kephalion of Herakleia, and to crown with an olive wreath . . . .Translation by: Kloppenborg
