ERYTHRAI HONOURS TIMOKRATES

Greek text:   Sylloge_413
Date:     c. 260 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

The names of the envoys confirm that the context of this inscription iks the same as Syll_412. There were several Greek cities called Erythrai, and this decree shows that there were some links between the city in Asia Minor and a smaller city of the same name in Thessaly.


It is resolved by the council and the people, as recommended by the generals, the prytaneis and the exetastai: since Timokrates of Erythrai near Thermopylai, the son of Timeas, has previously always spoken and acted in the interests of our city, and now when they were visited by our envoys - Pythagoras, Epikouros and Lampon - after he was appointed by the people to be an envoy, he joined in their mission and eagerly co-operated with them in achieving what was beneficial to the city; therefore so that the people might be seen . . . { the rest is similar to 412 }
