Proxeny for a citizen of Sinope

Late 2nd century BC. Originally published by Latyshev

Text:

"Nomophylakes Eukrates son of Prytanios, Pleistonax son of Dionysios, Apollonios son of Parthenokleios, and Apollodoros son of Herogeitos who stands at the head of the government, proposed: whereas Menophilos son of Menophilos, of Sinope, is a person good and honorable for the people of Chersonesos, and always nobly presenting himself at the disposal, particularly to the citizens who are dealing with him, and displayed himself good-willing and ready for help, trying always to do some benefit, so in order that the people may be seen worthy of the men, who are aspiring to get better benefits, be it resolved by the council and people (...)".

Commentary:

[Under construction]

Nomophylakes, literally 'those who guard the law', were the officials responsible for keeping documents of state (laws), and supervised over the people's assemblies and meetings of the council. Their functions might also be similar with that of present court officers: British bailiffs and U.S. marshals.
