καλῷ σὺν τέττιγι Χαρίξεινος τρίχα τήνδε
κουρόσυνον κούραις θῆκ᾽ Ἀμαρυνθιάσι
σὺν βοῒ χερνιφθέντα: πάις δ᾽ ἴσον ἀστέρι λάμπει,
πωλικὸν ὡς ἵππος χνοῦν ἀποσεισάμενος.

— Paton edition

To the Amarynthian Nymphs did Charixenus dedicate this shorn hair along with a beautiful hair-pin shaped like a cicada, all purified by holy water, together with an ox. The boy shines like a star, like a foal that has cast its first coat of down.
