δέξαι μ᾽
, Ἡράκλεις, Ἀρχεστράτου ἱερὸν ὅπλον,
ὄφρα, ποτὶ ξεστὰν παστάδα κεκλιμένα,
γηραλέα τελέθοιμι, χορῶν ἀίουσα καὶ ὕμνων
ἀρκείτω στυγερὰ δῆρις Ἐνυαλίου.

— Paton edition

Accept me, Heracles, the consecrated shield of Aschestratus, so that, resting against thy polished porch I may grow old listening to song and dance. Enough of the hateful battle !
