This decree honours two men who served as choregoi in the 'Rural Dionysia' at Aixone, and as befitted the lavish expenditure expected of them, it was inscribed on a handsome stele ; see A.Makres, in "The Oxford Handbook of Greek and Roman Comedy", pp.81-84 ( Google Books ).
The inscription is dated by a reference to the archon Theophrastos; but there was an archon of this name both in 340/39 and in 313/2 B.C. Most scholars are inclined to accept the later date. The translation is adapted from N.F. Jones, "Rural Athens Under the Democracy", p. 106 ( Google Books ).
Gods. As proposed by Glaukides son of Sosippos; since the choregoi Auteas son of Autokles, and Philoxenides son of Philippos, well and honourably served in the choregia: Attalus' home page
