Κυνθιάδες, θαρσεῖτε: τὰ γὰρ τοῦ Κρητὸς Ἐχέμμα
κεῖται ἐν Ὀρτυγίῃ τόξα παρ᾽ Ἀρτέμιδι,
οἷς ὑμέων ἐκένωσεν ὄρος μέγα. νῦν δὲ πέπαυται,
αἶγες, ἐπεὶ σπονδὰς ἡ θεὸς εἰργάσατο.

— Paton edition

Ye denizens of Cynthus, be of good cheer ; for the
bow of Cretan Echemmas hangs in Ortygia in the
house of Artemis, that bow with which he cleared a great mountain of you. Now he rests, ye goats, for the goddess has made him consent to a truce.
