the motion that was proposed by . . . Name: Whereas Menis son of Mnesitheos continues to be well-disposed towards the society-members (thiasōtai) and is ambitious with respect to the temple, and now having been chosen treasurer in the year that Euktemon was civic leader (archon), undertook all his responsibilities honorably and ambitiously, and built both the portico and the pediment of the temple of Zeus Labraundos in a manner worthy of the god and managed the association’s affairs honorably and fairly without reproach, performing his duty for all the society-members, both before and during the time he assumed office as treasurer, and he expended funds from his own income for the temple unflinchingly, displaying the favorable disposition that he had towards the society-members, and worthily enacting the priesthood of the god. Therefore, on account of all these things it was resolved by the society-members to commend Menis son of Mnesitheos of Herakleia and to crown him with an olive wreath, and also to set up a votive image of him in the temple, wherever seems appropriate, writing it on a tablet according to the law, in order, so that it may be evident to all who desire to be ambitious in regard to the temple that they shall be honored fittingly, everyone who acts as a benefactor to the society members. Let them inscribe this decree on a monument (stele) and set it up in the temple of the god.
