τῷ με Κανωπίτᾳ Καλλίστιον εἴκοσι μύξαις
πλούσιον, ἁ Κριτίου, λύχνον ἔθηκε θεῷ,
εὐξαμένα περὶ παιδὸς Ἀπελλίδος: ἐς δ᾽ ἐμὰ φέγγη
ἀθρήσας φήσεις: Ἕσπερε, πῶς ἔπεσες.

— Paton edition

Kallistion, the wife of Critios, dedicated me, the
lamp rich in twenty wicks, to the god of Canopus, having made the vow for her daughter Apellis, When you see my lights you will cry, "Hesperus, how art thou fallen ! "
