LETTER OF ATTALOS II TO ILION

Original text:   IMT_239
Date:     160-139 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations


King Attalos to the council and the people of Ilion, greetings. The attitude which I maintain on every occasion in the matter of reverence for the gods and especially for Athene has I am convinced become clear to all through the former letter I wrote to you; by that I dedicated the cows and the herdsmen, and now I have purchased land . . .
