Τρίζυγες, οὑρεσιοικε, κασίγνητοι τάδε τέχνας
ἄλλος ἀπ᾽ ἀλλοίας σοὶ λίνα, Πάν, ἔθεσαν,

καὶ τὰ μὲν ὀρνίθων Πίγρης, τὰ δὲ δίκτυα θηρῶν
Δᾶμις, ὁ δὲ Κλείτωρ εἰναλίων ἔπορεν

τῶν ὁ μὲν ἐν ξυλόχοισιν, ὁ δ᾽ ἠερίῃσιν ἐν ἄγραις
αἰέν, ὁ δ᾽ ἐν πελάγει εὔστοχον ἄρκυν ἔχοι.

— Paton edition

Pan, who dwellest in the mountains, the three brothers dedicated to thee these three nets, each from a different craft. Pigres gave his fowling nets, Damis his nets for beasts, and Cleitor his for fishes. Let the nets of the one be always lucky in the wood, those of the second in the air, and those of the third in the sea.
