Nikodemos of Messenia is cited by Plutarch ( Dem_13'4 ) as an example of a politician who changed sides, starting as a supporter of Kassandros and then becoming a supporter of Demetrios I (perhaps in 303/2 B.C.). Because we do not know the exact year in which Megakles was archon at Delphi, it is not certain whether this decree was passed before Nikodemos changed his allegiance.

The Delphians granted to Nikodemos of Messenia, the son of Nikarchides, both to himself and to his descendants, proxeny, priority in consulting the oracle, privileged seating, priority in receiving justice, inviolability, and freedom from all taxes. The archon was Megakles, and the councillors were Echekratidas, Aristomachos and Archiadas.
