Kallippos to Asklapios. ( Xenon
being archon), he releases, Kallippos,
Philonidas as free in the presence
of Asklapios. Let him remain,
Philonidas, with Kallipp os
so long as he lives, Kallippos. Whoever should wr
ong Philonidas contrary to what Kallipp
os has on the stele written, to Askl
apios and the other gods he will pay the penalty,
and let him not belong, Philonidas, of Kal l
ippos' descendants, to anyone, and let Philonidas,
just as he has sworn to Asklapios,
abide by the oaths. Philonid a
s, when he leaves, as a free man
let him leave, taking the tools,
those of his work. He will give
also to Persis one hundred drachma s.
