DELPHI HONOURS NIKANDROS OF KOLOPHON

Greek text:   Sylloge_452
Date:     254/3 or 250/49 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

This appears to be a different person from the Nicander whose poems have survived in medieval manuscripts - see the Life of Nicander.


With good fortune. The Delphians have granted to Nikandros of Kolophon, the son of Anaxagoras, an epic poet, both to himself and to his descendants: proxeny, priority in consulting the oracle, inviolability, priority in access to justice, freedom from all taxes, privileged seating at all the games which the city holds, and all the other privileges which are awarded to other proxenoi and benefactors of the city of Delphi. When the archon was Nikodamos, and the members of the council were Ariston, Nikodamos, Pleiston, Xenon and Epicharidas.
