πορφυρὶς ἡ Κνιδίη τὰ στέμματα, καὶ τὸ δίθυρσον
τοῦτο τὸ λογχωτόν, καὶ τὸ περισφύριον,
οἷς ἀνέδην βάκχευεν, ὅτ᾽ ἐς Διόνυσον ἐφοίτα
κισσωτὴν στέρνοις νεβρίδ᾽ ἀναπτομένη,

αὐτῷ σοί, Διόνυσε, πρὸ παστάδος ᾐώρησε
ταῦτα τὰ καὶ κάλλευς κόσμια καὶ μανίης.

— Paton edition

Cnidian Porphyris suspends before thy chamber, Dionysus, these gauds of her beauty and her madness, her crowns, and this double thyrsus-spear, and her anklet, with all of which she raved her fill whenever she betook her to Dionysus, her ivy-decked fawn-skin knotted on her bosom.
