In the year that Herakleitοs was leader (archon), in the month of Mounichion, in the regular assembly, Paramonos son of Parmeniskos of Epieikidai, made the following motion: whereas Glaukon, allotted priestess for the year that Euphiletos was leader (archon), carried out her priesthood honorably and in a pious manner, and was ambitious in regard to the other matters that pertain to the goddess, and in order that the sacrificing associates (orgeōnes) should be seen to render thanks to those women who are chosen as priestesses and who are ambitious in regard to the goddess and for the association of sacrificing associates. For good fortune, it has been resolved by the sacrificing associates to commend Glaukon the priestess and to crown her with an olive wreath on account of the piety that she has shown toward the goddess and the zeal she has shown for the members themselves. They shall also to erect a statue of her in the temple. And it is resolved to wreath it (i.e. the statue) yearly from that time on during each sacrifice; that the supervisors (epimelētai) should announce the awarding of her wreath; and that the sacrificing associates should inscribe this decree on a monument (stele) and erect it in the sacred precinct of the goddess.
The members honor the priestess Glaukon.Translation by: Kloppenborg
