The Danaens (= Greeks) set up (the man who) nourishes all Muses (= arts) and all kind of justice, the proconsul of the age-old land of Achaea, the wall of Achaea, crown of Rome, glory of his blood (= family), he has reached the full climax in all virtues, the excellent Agorius, in a marble statue (dedicated to) the Heliconian Muses. The noble-minded Pericles set it up, a man crowned by the calmness of his life and by steady wisdom. By decree of the council and the people.
