[22] Throughout all your life show that you value truth so highly that your word is more to be trusted than the oaths of other men.1 To all foreigners, see that the city offers security and good faith in its engagements; and in your treatment of those who come from abroad, make the most, not of those who bring you gifts, but of those who expect to receive gifts from you; for by honoring such men you will have greater esteem from the rest of the world.
