Texts

βριθὺ μὲν ἀγραύλων τόδε δίκτυον ἄνθετο θηρῶν
Δᾶμις, καὶ Πίγρης πτηνολέτιν νεφέλην,
ἁπλότατον δ᾽ ἁλὶ τοῦτο μιτορραφὲς ἀμφίβληστρον
Κλείτωρ εὐθήρῳ Πανὶ προσευξάμενοι.

τοὔνεκα, Πάν, κρατερῷ πόρε Δάμιδι ληΐδα θηρῶν,
Πίγρῃ δ᾽ οἰωνῶν, Κλείτορι δ᾽ εἰναλίων.

— Paton edition

This heavy net for forest beasts did Damis dedicate Pigres his light net that brings death to birds, and Cleitor his simple sweep-net woven of thread for the sea;, praying all three to Pan the hunter’s god. Therefore, Pan, grant to strong Damis good booty of beasts, to Pigres of fowls, and to Cleitor of fishes.
