According to the inscription, the demos of the Athenians honors the Samians, because they remained loyal to them, after the defeat of the Athenian fleet at Aigos Potamoi by the Spartans, although their other allies had revolted. The text is a copy of the original decree issued in 405 BC, inscribed in 403/2 BC.
