[A] When Nikodoros was archon, in the sixth prytany of the Kekropis tribe, on the 11th day of Gamelion, which was the 26th day of the prytany, in assembly; Aristokrates of Oinoē, the son of Aristodemos, and the other presidents put it to the vote on behalf of the presidents; Thrasykles of Thria, the son Nausikrates, proposed: it is resolved by the people, to praise Asandros the Macedonian, the son of Agathon, because he has given excellent service both privately to those Athenians who visited his county, and publicly to the Athenian people; and when he came to the city, he provided his own ships and soldiers to the Athenians for . . .

[B] . . . they withdrew to [their own land] (?) at his expense; and to grant him meals in the prytaneion and privileged seating at all the city's games, both for himself and for the eldest of his descendants; and to permit him to set up a bronze statue of himself in the agora, wherever he wishes except beside Harmodios and Aristogeiton.
