i.a [It was resolved] by the sacred xystic [?travelling synod under] Herakles and the agonistic one (i.e. Hermes) [and the emperors M(arcus) Aur(elius) Anto]ninus and L(ucius) Au[r(elius) Verus, of sacred and crowned victors] from the whole world [?at Antioch] Caesaria Co[lonia ?on the occasion of the contest worth ?one] talent: [Proposer ....] seconded by T(itus) Aelius M[...], wrestler, extraordinary: since Aelius Aurelius Menandros, (10) extraordinary, and xystarch for life of the contests in Colonia Antiochia, who practised as an athlete with honour and with concern, has reached such honour that, firstly, he has won with good fortune so many contests and has brought honour at each contest to his splendid homeland by proclamations and crowns and especially also in the time of the divine Antoninus, so that he was not only crowned at his hands, but also honoured with (20) particular honours; meanwhile, having become xystarch, he cared with such forethought and concern, and with all zeal, for our interests, exercising his office excellently well; for these reasons both on many other occasions and now praising the man and bearing witness to him we have sent resolutions to the lords emperors, considering that (these would be) the greatest and (30) appropriate returns to him for his goodwill towards us, and because with sufficient expenditure and much effort he succeeded in arranging that the recent contest was conducted among the people of Antioch, so that we think that the prizes were obtained from his own resources. Therefore it has been decreed, with good fortune to thank Menandros before the most sacred Council and the most splendid People of the Aphrodisians concerning what has been described, (40) and to honour him with the erection of statues and the dedication of images in the most distinguished location of his homeland; the honours are to be inscribed with the publication of this decree, in order that his honours from us should be perpetual. He is also citizen of the following cities: of the Pergamenes, of the Antiochenes, Caesarean colonists, and councillor of the Thebans, and councillor of the Apolloniatai, (50) Lycian and Thracian, and councillor of the Milesians, the Pessinuntii, the Claudiopolitai. Zenon son of Apollonios son of Menandros, his brother, was responsible for the honours. ii.[?The Council and People] honoured with the [finest] and greatest [?honours] Aelius Aurelius Menandros, who practised as an athlete with distinction [and with diligence], multiple victor, pancratiast, extraordinary, xystarch, of an honourable and [leading family], who was the first and only man of all time to contest over three years in the three categories, as [boy] and (10) as young man and as adult, and who won sacred (contests) and (contests) with prizes to the value of a talent and very many other contests: (He won) at Neapolis, in the Sebasta, the pancration of the Claudian boys; in the Nemea, the boys'pancration; in the Isthmia, the young men's pancration; at Ephesus, in the Balbillea, the young men's pancration - - a contest with no outright victor; at Pergamum, in the provincial festival of Asia, the men's pancration; at Ephesus, in the Balbillea, the men's pancration; at Smyrna, (20) in the provincial festival of Asia, the men's pancration; on the occasion of the seventh Panathenais in the Panathenaia, the men's pancration, first Aphrodisian (to do so); in the Nemeia, the men's pancration, and in the following Nemeia, the men's pancration - - a contest with no outright victor; in the Olympia at Athens, the men's pancration, the first Aphrodisian (to do so); in the Pythia, the men's pancration; at Rome, in the Capitolia Olympia, the men's pancration, the first Aphrodisian (to do so); (30)[... , the men's pancration, the first] Aphrodisian (to do so); c [ at ? ... , in the provincial] festival of Asia, [the men's pancration;] at Mitylene, [the men's pan]cration; at Adra[myttion, the men's] pancration; [at ? ...], the men's pancration; [at ? ...], the men's pancration; (40) [in the ?], the men's pancration; [at ?
