As proposed by Kephisodoros of Xypete, the son of Aristodemos: since the laws direct that whoever is awarded hospitality in the prytaneion by the Athenian people, as a reward for erecting a victory trophy either by land or by sea, or for restoring freedom to the city, or for contributing his private wealth to protect the public safety, or for being benefactors and good counsellors; the council and the people shall take care of these men and their descendants, and the people shall give a dowry as it sees fit for the marriage of their daughters, and shall give money to each of its benefactors as they deserve, for the repair of their property; and since Timosthenes, the grandfather of Timosthenes, provided many great benefits to the people . . . therefore it is resolved by the council that the presidents, who are allotted to preside at the next assembly, shall raise this matter and shall bring the decision of the council to the people, that it has been resolved by the council . . .
