The wording of this decree is almost identical to Syll_534.A, another decree in honour of an Aetolian superintendant.
Gods. When Euangelos was archon, and the councillors were Kleon, Kleodamos and Amyntas, it was resolved by the city of Delphi in full assembly with the votes prescribed by law: since Philleas of Naupaktos, the son of Mikkos, has in the past continually shown goodwill towards our city, and now, after being appointed by the Aetolians to be superintendent of the temple and the city, he has protected the temple and the city in a pious and honourable manner; and his conduct towards the citizens has been good and seemly; and he has further increased the existing goodwill between ourselves and the Aetolians; therefore it is resolved to praise Philleas of Naupaktos, the son of Mikkos, on account of his piety and his good conduct towards the temple and the city; to make him and his descendants proxenoi of the city; and to grant to him and his descendants priority in consulting the oracle, inviolability, freedom from taxes, privileged seating at all the games that the city holds, and the other rights which are granted to other proxenoi and benefactors of the temple and the city; and to grant to him and his descendants grazing rights in the territory of Delphi, for all time.
