τρισσὰ τάδε τρισσοὶ θηραγρέται, ἄλλος ἀπ᾽ ἄλλης
τέχνης, πρὸς νηῷ Πανὸς ἔθεντο λίνα:
Πίγρης μὲν πτανοῖσιν ἐφεὶς βόλον, ἐν δ᾽ ἁλίοισιν
Κλείτωρ, ἐν θηρσὶν Δᾶμις ἐρημονόμοις.

τοὔνεκα, Πάν, τὸν μέν γε δι᾽ αἰθέρος, ὃν δ᾽ ἀπὸ λόχμης,
τὸν δὲ δι᾽ αἰγιαλῶν θὲς πολυαγρότερον.

— Paton edition

The three huntsmen, each from a different craft, dedicated these nets in Pan’s temple; Pigres who set his nets for birds, Cleitor who set his for sea-fishes, and Damis who set his for the beasts of the waste. Therefore, Pan, make them more successful, the one in the air, the other in the thicket, and the third on the beach.
