The city of Aigai in Aiolis probably decided to honour Seleukos I and his son Antiochos I very soon after their victory at the battle of Koroupedion, in 281 B.C. The extravagance of the honours is remarkable; but the city's gratitude for "becoming free" - from the rule of Lysimachos - may well have been genuine. This inscription was first published in 2009 by H.Malay & M.Ricl (Epigraphica Anatolica, vol. 42 - PDF ); their translation is reproduced here, with a few minor changes.
