I.Eleusis 201. Translation by Emilia Onuonga, The Lawrenceville School class of 2019. Thrasyphon son of Hierokleidos from the deme of Xypete proposed: Whereas the hierephant Chairetios continues being well-minded Towards the clans both of the Kerykes and the Eumolpidai and he says and he does whatever good he is able to do on their behalf; and for those who travel away from home to announce the truce he continues registering the announcement with well-mindedness; and he also behaves honorably in the office of the priesthood presenting himself blamelessly. Thus, in order that the clans may appear honoring those being both good and deemed worthy of them, for good fortune, may it be resolved by the Kerykes and the Eumolpidai to praise the hierophant Chairetios son of Prophetes from Eleusis and to crown him with a crown of myrtle, the one that is ancestral to him, on account of the well-mindedness which he continues to have towards the clans. And (may it be resolved) to proclaim publicly this crown during the Dionysia at the ancestral contest at Eleusis in the theatre. And that the archons being appointed from each clan at that time take charge of the public announcing of the crown. And to write this decree on a stele of stone and to set (it) up at Eleusis in the courtyard of the sanctuary, and the archons of the clans should take charge of the making of the stele and of the setting up in public. In the crown: Kerykes and Eumolpidai The hierophant Chairetios Of Eleusis
