ἅλικες αἵ τε κόμαι καὶ ὁ Κρωβύλος, ἃς ἀπὸ Φοίβῳ
πέξατο μολπαστᾷ κῶρος ὁ τετραετής:
αἰχμητὰν δ᾽ ἐπέθυσεν ἀλέκτορα, καὶ πλακόεντα
παῖς Ἡγησιδίκου πίονα τυροφόρον.

Ὤπολλον, θείης τὸν Κρωβύλον εἰς τέλος ἄνδρα,
οἴκου καὶ κτεάνων χεῖρας ὕπερθεν ἔχων.

— Paton edition

Of one age are the locks and Crobylus, the locks that the four-year old boy shore for Apollo the lyre-player, and therewith a fighting cock did Hegesidicus’ son sacrifice, and a rich march-pane. Bring Crobylus up, O Phoebus, to perfect manhood, holding thy hands over his house and his possessions.
