Λητοΐδη, σὺ μὲν ἔσχες ἁλίρρυτον αὐχένα Δήλου,
κοῦρε Διὸς μεγάλου, θέσφατα πᾶσι λέγων:
Κεκροπίαν δ᾽ Ἐχέδημος, ὁ δεύτερος Ἀτθίδι Φοῖβος,
ᾧ καλὸν ἁβροκόμης ἄνθος ἔλαμψεν Ἔρως.

ἡ δ᾽ ἀνὰ κῦμ᾽ ἄρξασα καὶ ἐν χθονὶ πατρὶς Ἀθήνη
νῦν κάλλει δούλην Ἑλλάδ᾽ ὑπηγάγετο.

— Paton edition

Child of Leto, son of Zeus the great, who utterest oracles to all men, thou art lord of the sea-girt height of Delos; but the lord of the land of Cecrops is Echedemus, a second Attic Phoebus whom soft-haired Love lit with lovely bloom. And his city Athens, once mistress of the sea and land, now has made all Greece her slave by beauty.
