1Portion of a decision rendered
2in year 7 by the chrematistai
3Pausistratos and Lophios:
4On the basis of all of the above,
5we give judgement for Mousaios to be
6transported to the works,
7and also to be transported for Nikias,
8son of Nikanor, Macedonian, to the
9works, whose whereabouts are unknown
10at the moment, because
11he was recorded as the legal representative of Biote,
12even though her father is still alive,
13without having received an order
14from the king or
15from chrematistai,
16but putting himself forward
17for this purpose contrary to the laws
18which contain a royal proclamation
19concerning the requirements for marriage,
20and (we give judgement) that anyone
21who wishes is to bring him before
