Gods. [It was resolved] by the city in full assembly, with the votes [as prescribed by law]: since the Teians have sent [Pythagoras son of Kleitos] and Kleitos son of Kleitos [to renew our close relationship and friendship], and to urge [our city] to concede that [their city and territory is] sacred [to Dionysos and inviolable; therefore it is resolved] by the city, [to maintain] and enhance [the friendship and close relationship that exists] with the Teians; and that their city [and territory] shall be sacred to Dionysos and inviolable, as [the envoys] have requested; and that they and the other residents of Teos shall have security [and inviolability], in the same way as has been granted to the [Dionysiac] artists. So that this decree may be preserved for all time, the councillors in office shall inscribe it and place it in the temple. When Megartas was archon, and the councillors were [Mnasitheos], Athambos, Protarchos, Philinos and Nikoboulos.
