Dittenberger, thinking that this inscription honoured Acilius, dated it to 191/0 B.C.

With good fortune. It was resolved by the city of Delphi in full [assembly], with votes as prescribed by law: since Dionysios of Elea, the son of Legetos, when he was residing in our city, conducted himself during his residence here in a [fine and] seemly manner, worthy of his fatherland and his our city; and when he came before [the people] and was deemed worthy to be given the status of theorodokos, he accepted the duties for the Pythian [and Soteria] games; therefore with [good] fortune it is resolved by the city to praise Dionysios of Elea, the son of Legetos, [and to grant him and] his descendants proxeny and the position of theorodokos for the Pythian [and (?) Soteria games . . . wherever] appears fitting. [When (?) Praxias] was archon, [and the members of the council were (?) Mnason, Sotimos and] Amphistratos.
