ὧραί σοι Χάριτές τε κατὰ γλυκὺ χεῦαν ἔλαιον,
ὦ πυγά: κνώσσειν δ᾽ οὐδὲ γέροντας ἐᾷς.
λέξον μοι. τίνος ἐσσὶ μάκαιρα τύ, καὶ τίνα παίδων
κοσμεῖς; ἁ πυγὰ δ᾽ εἶπε: Μενεκράτεος.

— Paton edition

The Hours and Graces shed sweet oil on thee, and thou lettest not even old men sleep. Tell me whose thou art and which of the boys thou adornest. And the answer was, Menecrates.
