Cf. Ferguson 1944, 82-83 (no. 4).

On the proposition of Mnesigeiton, . . . it was resolved by the sacrificing associates (?): Since Mnesarchos . . . is a good man in relation to the Athenian (?) People, and he is kind as he displays love of honor to the People and to the association (koinon) . . . of sacrificing associates (orgeōnes), . . . the sacrificing associates resolved to praise (?) . . . Mnesarchos. . . (remainder lost).
