Texts

Θῆρις ὁ δαιδαλόχειρ τᾷ Παλλάδι πῆχυν ἀκαμπῆ,
καὶ τετανὸν νώτῳ καμπτόμενον πρίονα,
καὶ πέλεκυν ῥυκάναν τ᾽ εὐαυγέα, καὶ περιαγὲς
τρύπανον, ἐκ τέχνας ἄνθετο παυσάμενος.

— Paton edition

Theris, the cunning worker, on abandoning his
craft, dedicates to Pallas his straight cubit-rule, his stiff saw with curved handle, his bright axe and plane, and his revolving gimlet.
