ὁ Κρὴς Θηρίμαχος τὰ λαγωβόλα Πανὶ Λυκαίῳ
ταῦτα πρὸς Ἀρκαδικοῖς ἐκρέμασε σκοπέλοις.
ἀλλὰ σὺ Θηριμάχῳ δώρων χάριν, ἀγρότα δαῖμον,
χεῖρα κατιθύνοις τοξότιν ἐν πολέμῳ,


ἔν τε συναγκείαισι παρίστασο δεξιτερῇ οἱ,
πρῶτα διδοὺς ἄγρης, πρῶτα καὶ ἀντιπάλων. .

— Paton edition

Therimachus the Cretan suspended these his hare-staves to Lycaean Pan on the Arcadian cliff. But do thou, country god, in return for his gift, direct aright the archer’s hand in battle, and in the forest dells stand beside him on his right hand, giving him supremacy in the chase and supremacy over his foes.
