This association was likely founded by a man named Polykles or a woman named Polykleia. The meaning of Boarsans (Boarsoi) is uncertain but may refer to a village, district or neighborhood.

The association (koinon) of the Polykleian Boarsans (Boarsoi) honored with a gold crown and a bronze image Peisikrates (?) son of Peisistratos and adopted son of Nikasios because of the goodwill and pursuit of glory which he continues to have towards the association of Polykleian Boarsans.
