'These oaths are also quoted by Lykourgos, Against Leokrates 76 and 80. The ephebic oath probably goes back to at least the sixth century BC.

§ 2.21  Oath which the Athenians swore when they were about to fight against the barbarians.
I shall fight while I live, and I shall not reckon living of more account than being free, and [25] I shall not desert the taxiarch nor the enomotarch, whether living or dead, and I shall not retreat unless the commanders lead the way, and I shall do whatever the generals order, and shall bury [30] the dead of those who were allies on the spot, and shall leave no-one unburied; and having been victorious fighting the barbarians, I shall tithe the city of the Thebans, and I shall not destroy Athens or Sparta or Plataia [35] or any of the other cities that were allied, and I shall not overlook those who are oppressed by hunger, nor shall I bar them from running water, whether they are friends or enemies; and if I adhere to what has been written [40] in the oath may my city be free from disease, if not, diseased; and may my city be unsacked, but if not, may it be sacked; and may mine (scil. my land) be fruitful, but if not, may it be barren; and may the women bear children like their parents, but if not, monsters; and may the [45] animals bear young like the animals, but if not, monsters. They swore these oaths, covered the sacrificial victims with their shields, and at the sound of the trumpet they made a curse: if they transgressed anything that they had sworn and did not [50] adhere to what was written in the oath, those who had sworn would be accursed.

If the members of the thiasos vote that the candidate is a phrater of theirs, but the other [90] phrateres vote him out, the members of the thiasos shall owe a hundred drachmas sacred to Zeus Phratrios, except for any members of the thiasos who accuse him or are seen to be opposed to him in the adjudication. If the [95] members of the thiasos vote him out, but the introducer appeals to all and all decide that he is a phrater, he shall be inscribed in the common registers. But if all vote him out, he shall owe a hundred drachmas [100] sacred to Zeus Phratrios.

§ 17.i  Decree inviting states to join the Second Athenian League, Rhodes and Osborne 22, translated by Stephen Lambert and P. J. Rhodes, Date: 378/7 BC, found in the Athenian Agora After the liberation of Thebes from Sparta in winter 379/8 (incorrectly dated a year later by Diodoros) the Athenians sent envoys to cities around the Greek world paving the way for a new alliance. Chios and Byzantium were first to respond positively, followed by Rhodes, Mytilene and others. The Athenians established a Council (synedrion) of the allies to meet at Athens, the allies to remain autonomous, but under Athenian leadership. Diodoros seems to imply that Thebes was initially outside, but allied to the new system, but soon became a full member. In a reference to unpopular aspects of her 5th cent. empire, the Athenians decided to give up all cleruchies (Athenian settlements) in allied cities and to forbid Athenians to farm land outside Attica.

§ 17.26  For those who make an alliance with the Athenians and the allies the People shall renounce whatever possessions there happen to be whether private or public of the Athenians in the territory of those who make the alliance, and concerning these the Athenians shall give a pledge. For whichever of the cities which make the alliance with the Athenians there happen to be stelai at Athens which are unfavourable, the Council in office at the time shall have authority to demolish them. From the archonship of Nausinikos (378/7) it shall not be permitted either privately or publicly to any of the Athenians to acquire in the territory of the allies either a house or land either by purchase or by taking security or in any other way.

These things are to be inscribed; and the People shall elect three ambassadors (to go) immediately to Thebes, in order to persuade the Thebans (to do) whatever good they can.
