Translation

Ὑπάτου, βέστου τὰς γραφὰς Εὐστρατίου κυρῶ κριτοῦ Θρᾴκης τε Μακεδονίας.

I validate the correspondence of Eustratios, hypatos, vestes, and judge of Thrace and Macedonia.

Commentary

Two correct twelve-syllable verses obtained by an unorthodox use of τε: see H. Hunger in SBS 2 (1990) 33. The order of the titles has been shifted about in order to fit the metre.
