The decree's provisions indicate political difficulties on Carpathos which led to Athenian intervention and to political privileges and higher political status for the koinon within the Delian League.
This paper argues that the gift of the cypress and issuance of the decree are associated with the first appearance of the koinon on the Athenian Tribute List in 434/3 BCE (ATL 274).
The koinon appears under the rubric, "cities which took the initiative in getting themselves assessed" (Lepper, JHS 82 [1962]); we can regard this action as evidence of Eteocarpathian initiative in working out the terms of its accession to the alliance.
