The Athenian People and the synod (synodos) of the Pompey-devotees (Pompeiastai) who are in Delos honored Gnaeus Pompeius son of Gnaeus, great absolute ruler, dedicating this to Apollo, Artemis, and Leto (?). This was done when Zenon son of Zenon was leader (archōn) of the synod and Aulus Calvius was leader of the gathering (synagōgeus) for life, and L. Dionysios son of Lenaeus, public servant (or: public official), was secretary of the synod for the third time.
