I Eleus. 511 Date: Ca. 180-185 AD
 
O visitors (xeinoi), after the famous temple (anaktora)[1] of Deo, behold also a parents’ famous daughter, Praxagora,[2] whom Demostratos of Melite[3] (5) and Philiste[4] brought into this world, both being descended of dadouch parents;[5] but a chorus of children decorates me too; in front of the other initiates (mustōn) at the ceremonies (teletais),[6] (10) they have placed a wreath (stemma) on my hair.[7]
