τὰν ἀναδυομέναν ἀπὸ ματέρος ἄρτι θαλάσσας
Κύπριν ὅλην χρυσῆν ἐχθὲς ἔκλεψε Δίων

καὶ χερὶ προσκατέσυρεν ὁλοσφύρητον Ἄδωνιν,
καὶ τὸ παρεστηκὸς μικρὸν Ἐρωτάριον.

αὐτοὶ νῦν ἐρέουσιν ὅσοι ποτὲ φῶρες ἄριστοι:

οὐκέτι σοὶ χειρῶν εἰς ἔριν ἐρχόμεθα

— Paton edition

Dio yesterday stole Cypris all of gold, just risen from her mother sea, and he also pulled down with his hand Adonis of beaten gold and the little Love that stood by. Even the best thieves that ever were will now say,, “No longer do we enter into a contest of dexterity with you.”
