[? Nikomedes king of the Bithynians] to the Council and People of the [Plarasans and Aphrodisians], greetings. [? If you are well it would be] as we wish; we too are in good health. Artemidoros and the ambassadors chosen at the same time met and greeted us from the People and gave us the letter you have written, in which you reported that you had rejoiced at the satisfactory progress of our affairs and had crowned us with a golden crown and a statue. Further your ambassadors spoke in terms which accorded with those expressed in the letter and furnished a sacrifice worthy of our conduct. Understanding then from many [things] that your people are [well disposed] to us and [? anxious for our] success in all [our ? undertakings], we approve and have [praised] very highly [your] goodwill and shall try, in our prosperity, to [? do you favours] in a manner worthy both of you and [our own] reputation. [. . . ? . . . ] Artemidoros [.. ? ..] sons [.. ? ..] to be [.. ? ..] with us [ . . . ? . . . we ?decided] and [? have written] to you about these things. Farewell.
