σοί, μάκαρ αἰγίκναμε, παράκτιον ἐς περιωπὰν
τὸν τράγον ὦ δισσᾶς ἀγέτα θηροσύνας —
σοὶ γὰρ καστορίδων ὑλακὰ καὶ τρίστομος αἰχμὴ
εὔαδε, καὶ ταχινῆς ἔργα λαγωσφαγίης,

δίκτυὰ τ᾽ ἐν ῥοθίοις ἁπλούμενα, καὶ καλαμευτὰς
κάμνων, καὶ μογερῶν πεῖσμα σαγηνοβόλων —
ἄνθετο δὲ Κλεόνικος, ἐπεὶ καὶ πόντιον ἄγραν
ἄνυε, καὶ πτῶκας πολλάκις ἐξεσόβει.

— Paton edition

Thine, goat-legged god, for thy watch-tower by the sea, is the goat, thou who presidest over both kinds of sport. For to thee are dear both the cry of the Laconian hounds, the three-edged spear and the work of slaying the swift hare, and eke the nets spread on the waves and the toiling angler and the cable of the labouring seine-fishers. He who dedicated it was Cleonicus, since he both engaged in sea-fishing and often started hares from their forms.
