Εἰνοδίη, σοὶ τόνδε φίλης ἀνεθήκατο κόρσης
πῖλον, ὁδοιπορίης σύμβολον, Ἀντίφιλος:
ἦσθα γὰρ εὐχωλῇσι κατήκοος, ἦσθα κελεύθοις
ἵλαος: οὐ πολλὴ δ᾽ ἡ χάρις, ἀλλ᾽ ὁσίη.

μὴ δέ τις ἡμετέρου μάρψῃ χερὶ μάργος ὁδίτης
ἀνθέματος: συλᾶν ἀσφαλὲς οὐδ᾽ ὀλίγα.

— Paton edition

Artemis, goddess of the road, Antiphilus dedicates to thee this hat from his head, a token of his wayfaring; for thou hast hearkened to his vows, thou hast blessed his paths. The gift is not great, but given in piety, and let no covetous traveller lay his hand on my offering; it is not safe to despoil a shrine of even little gifts.
