It was agreed accordingly in the popular assembly, that the armistice should be for one year, beginning that very day, the fourteenth of the month of Elaphebolion;

during which time ambassadors and heralds should go and come between the two countries to discuss the bases of a pacification.

That the generals and prytanes should call an assembly of the people, in which the Athenians should first consult on the peace, and on the mode in which the embassy for putting an end to the war should be admitted.

That the embassy now present should at once take the engagement before the people to keep well and truly this truce for one year.
