Format:   see key to translations

Already by the time of this inscription the Aetolian League was showing a close interest in the affairs of Delphi, and granting rewards for activities that related purely to his city of Delphi and to the Amphictyons.


Gods. In the year when Arkison was general, it was resolved by the councillors {synedroi} to grant security and freedom from all taxes and inviolability to Athanion of Delphi, son of Patron, both to himself and to his family, because he has taken care of the panoply that the Amphictyons dedicated, and has also taken care of the gymnasium and the great colonnade and the workshops and the office of the naopoioi. He shall have security as the councillors and the commissioner of works instruct, and if anyone wrongs him, the councillors at the time shall take care of his protection.
