In the third century B.C., Delphi still had extensive links with Greek cities in Sicily and Italy, as shown by the catalogue of theorodokoi; but about five years after the date of this inscription, Kamarina was captured by the Romans - a blow from which it never recovered.

In the year of Damosthenes as archon, at the autumn assembly, when the hieromnemones were as follows:

and the secretary was Lamprion of Aetolia.

It was resolved by the hieromnemones to grant to Aristarchos of Kamarina [(?) in Sicily], the son of Silenos, both to himself and to his descendants, priority in receiving justice, security and inviolability from all harm, on account of his goodwill and his honourable conduct towards the council of the Amphictyons.
