DELPHI HONOURS NEANTHES AND POLYKLES OF KYZIKOS

Greek text:   FD_3.1.429
Date:     c. 300 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

Neanthes, who is honoured in this decree, is identified by Dittenberger and others as the historian Neanthes of Kyzikos, although some of the books ascribed to Neanthes, such as 'Histories of Attalos', clearly belong to a later period than this inscription.


Gods. The Delphians awarded to Neanthes and Polykles of Kyzikos, the sons of Nikoteles, both to themselves and to their descendants, proxeny, priority in access to the oracle, priority in receiving justice, the status of benefactors, inviolability, privileged seating, freedom from all taxes, and rights equivalent to citizens of Delphi. The archon was Herakleidas, and the councillors were Kleon, Theugenes and Archias.
