Epiteles was a prominent Athenian, who served as naopoios at Delphi; for an Athenian decree proposed by him in 323 B.C., see IG_2³.1.375. Dittenberger dated the inscription here to 324/3 B.C., but it is not even certain which archon of Delphi was named in the inscription; Kaphis has been suggested instead of Eukritos.

[Gods.] With good fortune. [The Delphians] have granted to [Epiteles of Athens], the son of Soïnomos, who belongs to the deme of Pergasē and the Erechtheïs tribe, both to himself and to [his descendants]: proxeny, priority in access to the oracle, [privileged seating at games], priority in receiving justice at Delphi, [freedom] from [all taxes, inviolability, and civil rights according to the law; when Eukritos was archon], and the members of the council were [Euag]oras, Kleoboulos and Lysidamos.
