Ἀγρονόμῳ τάδε Πανὶ καὶ εὐαστῆρι Λυαίῳ
πρέσβυς καὶ Νύμφαις Ἀρκὰς ἔθηκε Βίτων
Πανὶ μὲν ἀρτίτοκον χίμαρον συμπαίστορα ματρός,
κισσοῦ δὲ Βρομίῳ κλῶνα πολυπλανέος:


νύμφαις δὲ σκιερῆς εὐποίκιλον ἄνθος ὀπώρης,
φύλλα τε πεπταμένων αἱματόεντα ῥόδων.
ἀνθ᾽ ὧν εὔυδρον, Νύμφαι, τόδε δῶμα γέροντος
αὔξετε, Πὰν γλαγερόν, Βάκχε πολυστάφυλον

— Paton edition

Old Biton of Arcady dedicated these things to rustic Pan, and Bacchus the reveller, and the Nymphs ; to Pan a newly horn kid;, its mother’s play-fellow, to Bacchus a branch of vagrant ivy, to the Nymphs the varied bloom of shady Autumn and blood-red roses in full flower. In return for which, bless the old man’s house with abundance— ye Nymphs, of water, Pan, of milk, and Bacchus, of grapes.
