In the month Maimacterion1 in the archonship of Asteius,2 Alcetas and Jason came to visit Timotheus to be present at his trial and give him their support, and they arrived at his house in Peiraeus in the Hippodameia3 when it was already evening. Being at a loss how to entertain them, he sent his body servant Aeschrion to my father and bade him ask for the loan of some bedding and cloaks and two silver bowls and to borrow a mina of silver.

1 Maimacterion corresponds to the latter half of November and the prior half of December.

2 The archonship of Asteius falls in 373-372 B.C.

3 This was an agora built by the architect Hippodamus.
