Confusingly, another inscription has survived from around the same time ( BD_10 ), in which the Ionian League honours a strategos called Hippostratos of Miletos - see Errington, "History of the Hellenistic World", p.58.

It was resolved by the league of the Ionians: since Hippodamos of Miletos, the son of Hippodamos, a friend of king Lysimachos was appointed to be strategos over the cities of the Ionians, has continually treated each of the cities, and the Ionians as a whole, in a fitting and considerate manner; therefore with good fortune it is resolved by the league of the cities of the Ionians to praise Hippodamos son of Hippodamos on account of his virtue and the goodwill that he has continually shown towards the league of the Ionians; and that he shall be free from all taxes in the cities of the Ionians . . .
