. . . . (at least 7 missing or largely unintelligible lines). . . The banqueters (thoinatai) . . . of Ariston, who is a benefactor, because of the goodwill he especially maintains towards the synod (synodos). They praised Ariston son of Ariston because of these things.  They also decreed a perpetual crown so that it would be proclaimed in the gatherings (synodoi) during the tenth day on account of (?) love of honor towards the homeland.  And the decree is to be inscribed on a monument (telamōn) of white stone and set up . . . in the temple (?) . . . of Homonoia (“Concord”) . . .
