Left side, bottom (IG IV² 1, 83) When Secundus was archon and priest of Drusus the Consul, fifth day from the end of Boedromion. Areopagos at Eleusis. Teimosthenes son of Kallistomachos of Anaphlystos made a speech. It was decided, a distinguished youth having passed away at Epidauros, (10) being famous for his good birth (eugeneia) throughout Greece and descended from the most conspicuous (epiphanestatōn) men among us and from the most prestigious (endoxotatōn) cities in Greece, and having been snatched away by the divine (daimonos) from great expectations in the first stage of his life, to elect a select committee (hairesin) who will travel and console (paramuthēsomenēn) his parents and grandfather, and also to set up statues of him on the Acropolis and in the courtyard at Eleusis, alongside his (15) ancestors, and in Epidauros the Sacred in the precinct of Asklepios, with the inscription, “The Areopagos Council and the Council of the Six Hundred and the People (erected this statue of) Titus Statilius Lamprias son of Statilius Teimokrates, hero,” and the herald Lysiades shall also write to the city of the Epidaurians and send the memorandum (hupomnēmatismon), marked with the public seal (dēmosiai sphrageidi). Appointed as select committee: Teimosthenes son of Kallistomachos (20) of Anaphlystos, Kallistomachos son of Kallistomachos of Anaphlystos.
Front side (IG IV² 1, 84) When Secundus was archon and priest of Drusus the Consul, in the third prytany, of Erechtheis, for which Archelaos son of Lysimachos of Marathon was secretary, eighteenth day of Boedromion, eighteenth day of the prytany. Principal Assembly in the theatre. Of the presiding committee Platon of Iphistiadai was putting to the vote (25) and his fellow presiding committee members. Teimosthenes son of Kallistomachos of Anaphlystos proposed, since it has happened that Lamprias son of Teimokrates died in Epidauros before his time, a decorous (kosmion) and self-controlled (sōphrona) youth, adorned (kekosmemenon) with every kind of excellence (aretēi) in the first stage of his life worthily of his ancestors’ prestige (doxēs), and through good birth (eugeneiai) at Athens being a legitimate descendant of the ancient first men, of priests and priestesses of the goddess after whom the city is named and (30) of the hierophantic and dadouchic houses (oikōn), yet it was not only at Athens that he was adorned with good birth and brilliance (lamprotēti), but also in the most prestigious (endoxotatais) and most noble (eugenestatais) cities of Greece – Lakedaimon, and Argos and Sacred Epidauros, being second to no house and, in addition to this, having been honoured with the citizenship (poleiteiai), which is greatest and most famed among all men – that of the Romans. The Council and the People shall decide to dedicate (35) statues of him on the Acropolis and at Eleusis in the sacred court of the two goddesses, where those of his ancestors are also located, and at Epidauros the Sacred in the precinct of Asklepios, with this inscription: “The Council of the Areopagos and the Council of the Six Hundred and the People (erected this statue of) Titus Statilius Lamprias son of Titus Statilius Teimokrates for his excellence,” and also to elect an embassy to convey this decree (psēphisma) to Epidauros, which will also console (paramuthēsetai), (40) in the name of the city, his parents, Teimokrates and Teimosthenis, and his grandfather, Lamprias, so that, by doing these things, the opinion (gnomē) of the Athenians may be made apparent to all, which is in no way negligent with respect to the good and prestigious among the men of Greece, and is not uncaring in these kinds of disasters, but provides powerful honour to the dead and consolation to the living and unfortunate. (45) Envoys were elected: Teimosthenes son of Kallistomachos of Anaphlystos, Kallistomachos son of [Kallisto]machos of Anaphlystos, Nestor son of Sosthenes of Phlya.
