Text: 

ἐτέλουν δὲ Θηβαῖοι τὸν δασμὸν Ἐργίνωι δι’ αἰτίαν τήνδε. Κλύ-
μενον τὸν Μινυῶν βασιλέα λίθωι βαλὼν Μενοικέως ἡνίοχος ὄνομα Περιή- 
ρης ἐν Ὀγχηστῶι Ποσειδῶνος τεμένει τιτρώσκει· ὁ δὲ κομισθεὶς εἰς Ὀρχο-
μενὸν ἡμιθνὴς ἐπισκήπτει τελευτῶν Ἐργίνωι τῶι παιδὶ ἐκδικῆσαι τὸν
θάνατον αὐτοῦ.

Translation: 

The Thebans paid tribute to Erginos on account of this: in the temenos of Poseidon at Onchestos, Perieres, the charioteer of Menoikeus, injured with a stone Klymenos, the king of the Minyans. They transported to Orchomenos the half-dead body, and as he died, he urged his son Erginos to avenge his death.
