To good fortune. Lysikles ... [set up] this statue in stone to his son Dexippus with the consent of Athens. Because he carried out so many good deeds for the city, that will all be worthy into the distant future. (6) The one that you see standing here, stranger, is truly an Athenian by descent and a friend of the immortals. The mighty emperors esteemed him because of his deeds, which he did with all his heart, and those he did were good. The godlike Athenians Lysikles and Dexippus the beloved set him up to glorify him.
