The little city of Tabai in Caria supported Rome during the First Mithridatic War, and received rewards from Sulla, which were formally confirmed after he returned to Rome; see F.Santangelo, "Sulla, the Elites and the Empire", p. 53 ( Google Books ).
Another, slightly different translation is provided by ARS_67 ( Google Books ).
. . . [since the citizens of Tabai] most bravely confronted [the commanders and forces of King Mithridates on behalf of Asia and] Greece, [it pleases the] senate and people [of Rome] that they shall have and shall continue to have [all] the best rewards; and [their loyalty towards] the senate and people of Rome shall be remembered and shall continue to be remembered; and they shall have whatever [villages] were granted [to them] on account of their virtue and as a mark of honour by Lucius C[ornelius] Sulla imperator with the agreement of his advisors, so that [the villages] may be [subject] to their laws and decisions, and so that they may fortify the place called Thyessos, which is inside their [borders], if they so wish; [and the] senate and people of Rome shall determine these matters in a fine and [fitting] manner that is worthy of themselves, and it shall be granted . . .
