σοὶ γέρας, Ἀλκείδα Μινυαμάχε, τοῦτο Φίλιππος
δέρμα ταναιμύκου λευρὸν ἔθηκε βοὸς
αὐτοῖς σὺν κεράεσσι, τὸν ὕβρεϊ κυδιόωντα
ἔσβεσεν Ὀρβηλοῦ τρηχὺν ὑπὸ πρόποδα.

ὁ φθόνος αὐαίνοιτο τεὸν δ᾽ ἔτι κῦδος ἀέξει
ῥίζα Βεροιαίου κράντορος Ἠμαθίας.

— Paton edition

As a gift to thee, Heracles, sacker of Orchomemus, did Philip dedicate this, the smooth hide, with its horns, of the loud-bellowing bull, whose glorying insolence he quenched in the rough foot-hills of Orbelus. Let envy pine away ; but thy glory is increased, in that from thy race sprang the Beroean lord of Macedon.
