Rhamnous awards divine honours to king Antigonos

I Rhamnous 7 Date: 262-240 BC
 
Elpinikos son of Mnesippos of Rhamnous proposed: since Antigonos the king, and saviour of the People, continues to be a benefactor of the Athenian People and (5) because of this the People honoured him with honours on a par with the gods (timais isotheois), for good fortune, the Rhamnousians shall decide: to sacrifice to him on the nineteenth of Hekatombaion, at the gymnastic competition of the great Nemesia, (10) and to wear crowns (stephanēphorein), and the market tax shall provide the means for the demesmen to make this sacrifice; the demarch and whoever is appointed treasurer shall take care of the sacrifice; (15) and (they) shall inscribe this decree on a stone stele and stand it [by the altar?] of king Antigonos . . . . . . . . . . . .
