God. Good fort
( ( Wastias being archon
among the Boiotians ), and (in Leba
deia Dorkon ) ), Doilos
the son of Iraneos dedicates his
own servant An
drikos to Zeus Basileus
and to Trephonios to be consecrated,
him having remained with
his mother Athanodo
ra for ten years, just as his
father has commanded. But if she should
still live, Athanodora, he will pay,
Andrikos, the tribute in the
agreement set down; but if she
should suffer anything, Athanodora, let him
remain, Andrikos, for the rest of the
time with Doilos, and thereafter cons e
crated let him be, not belonging to any
one in any way. Let it not be possib
le to reduce to slavery
Andrikos for anyone, and let An
drikos serve as minister
in the sacrifices for the god s,
being these.
