Chapter Summary

The high point of an embassy to Rome came, of course, with an audience obtained before the senate, hearing the answer of that august assembly, and obtaining an authenticated copy of the decree of the senate. This chapter describes the case that is exceptional insofar as the senate had been approached by an individual. In the inscription that has reached, the text of the senatorial decree is preceded by a letter of the strategoi to the epimeletes of Delos, communicating the decision of the Council to him. Turning now to ambassadors of cities, the chapter describes the amphictionic decree of 185 in favour of Nicostratos of Larisa. The sending of a legate by the senate would have had the same effect. The simplest solution was undoubtedly to charge Menippos with giving a full diffusion to the decision taken by the senate in response to its embassy.
