ἁ φόρμιγξ, τά τε τόξα, καὶ ἀγκύλα δίκτυα Φοίβῳ
Σώσιδος, ἔκ τε Φίλας, ἔκ τε Πολυκράτεος.
χὠ μὲν ὀϊστευτὴρ κεραὸν βιόν, ἁ δὲ λυρῳδὸς
τὰν χέλυν, ὡγρευτὴς ὤπασε πλεκτὰ λίνα:

ἀλλ᾽ ὁ μὲν ὠκυβόλων ἰῶν κράτος, ἁ δὲ φέροιτο
ἄκρα λύρας, ὁ δ᾽ ἔχοι πρῶτα κυναγεσίας.

— Paton edition

The lyre, the bow, and the intricate nets are
dedicated to Phoebus by Sosis, Phila and Polycrates. The archer dedicated the horn bow, she, the musician, the tortoise-shell lyre, the hunter his nets. Let the first be supreme in archery, let her be supreme in playing, and let the last be first among huntsmen.
