Πίγρης ὀρνίθων ἄπο δίκτυα, Δᾶμις ὀρείων,
Κλείτωρ δ᾽ ἐκ βυθίων, σοὶ τάδε, Πάν, ἔθεσαν,
ξυνὸν ἀδελφειοὶ θήρης γέρας, ἄλλος ἀπ᾽ ἄλλης,
ἴδρι τὰ καὶ γαίης, ἴδρι τὰ καὶ πελάγευς:

ἀνθ᾽ ὧν τῷ μὲν ἁλός, τῷ δ᾽ ἠέρος, ᾧ δ᾽ ἀπὸ δρυμῶν
πέμπε κράτος ταύτῃ, δαῖμον, ἐπ᾽ εὐσεβίῃ.

— Paton edition

Pigres dedicates to thee, Pan, his nets for birds, Damis his for mountain beasts, and Cleitor his for those of the deep : a common gift from the brothers for their luck in the various kinds of chase to thee who art skilled in the things of sea and land alike. In return for which, and recognising their piety, give one dominion in the sea, the other in the air, the third in the woods.
