. . . displaying their piety, the citizens and resident foreigners and those who are staying [in Kos] shall wear garlands; and the presidents [shall go in procession] from the prytaneion with [the monarchos and the hieropoiai] and all [the priests and the victors] in games with a prize of crowns [and (?) the generals and the] gymnasiarch and the [youths and the ephebes. Along with the] other magistrates, they shall sacrifice to . . . and to Zeus the Greatest . . . and to Homonoia {"Concord"} and to Zeus Boulaios {"of the Council"} and . . . [and] to Plouton and all the other [gods] and goddesses [for the concord] and safety of the people and of king [Ariarathes and] the health of queen Antiochis [and their children]. They shall pray over the sacrifices that [all good things] may happen to the people of Kos and king [Ariarathes and] queen Antiochis and their children [and their] friends and their forces; and that the existing concord between them may remain for all [time, and their] goodwill and friendship [may be maintained] . . .
