The koinon synedrion of the Greeks, placed at Plataia, honours the Athenian Glaucon, younger brother of Chremonides (the proposer of the decree IG II/III³ 1, 912), and his descendants with public praise and proedria at the Panhellenic games Eleutheria by virtue of his many merits. Glaucon’s Panhellenic euergetism dates back to the past, when he was in Athens, and subsequently when, being exiled at the end of the Chremonidean war and while in service of Ptolemy II, he made offerings to the sanctuary of Zeus Eleutherios and Homonoia of the Greeks in Plataia and played a part in increasing both the sacrifices on the altar of the two gods and the games Eleutheria (founded at Plataia sometime after the rebuilding of the city by Alexander the Great).
