Translation: a. Decision of the Council and the People (? proposed by the magistrates), by Pereitas son of (?, grandson) of Antiochos, Secretary to the People, and by Attalos, son of Menandros, General in charge of the territory.b. Since Quintus Oppius, son of Quintus, Roman praetor with proconsular power, has sent (a message) that Laodikeia and he himself are under siege and since the People decided that they should help him in force and that the paroikoi and slaves should march out with them and has also chosen in the assembly a man for their leader and it is necessary to despatch ambassadors too, to inform the proconsul of the policy of our People towards the Romans who are saviours and benefactors, and, if the governor gives any other instruction for the city, to arrange that it is passed on clearly and carried out, the People decided to elect as ambassadors men from among those who are honoured and hold trust and are well disposed towards the Romans, who shall go to Quintus Oppius the proconsul and inform him of the policy of our People towards him and all Romans and shall report that we have not only decided to fight alongside him in force but have also chosen a man to command this auxiliary unit, Artemidoros the stcphanephoros, a man of those who are honoured and hold trust, and one distinguished in military excellence, and they shall inform him that our whole People, together with our wives and children and all our property (7), is ready (?) to risk all for Quintus and the Roman cause; and that without the rule of the Romans we do not choose even to live.
