This was resolved by the Council and the People of the Milesians who are settled at Aigiale on Amorgos on the proposal of the commanders and Board of Ten. The commanders in charge who are together with Straton son of Straton introduced the decree:
Whereas Eleutheris daughter of Aristeas, belonging to the foremost men, has suddenly retired and gone down from us. She was foremost in the three cities (of Amorgos) from a noble family and excelled in benevolence towards everyone. She possessed every virtue and loved her husband in a remarkable way. She has devastated everyone of us in the city, including the infants, who have lost her most beautiful appearance. For her love of goodness and beneficence flourish continuously. She was conducting herself in an irreproachable and holy manner with all reverence. She has left to her homeland noble children resembling herself–Hegesilochos, Aristeas, Kallirode, and Aristokritos–whom she embraced, and she was very successful concerning this.
For these reasons, it was resolved by the entire People to attend her burial in order to display remembrance of her goodness, to also publicly advise her children–Hegesilochos, Aristeas, and Kallirode–to emulate their mother as well as their father (?) . . . Therefore, the ashes from her are to be received until whatever malicious divine power which passes by takes her away. They will guard them for the homeland and for the care of the departed heroes. A public place is to be assigned for a proper burial wherever her children prefer.
It was resolved by everyone, having been introduced by Straton son of Straton.Translation by: Harland
