Texts

σάνδαλα μὲν τὰ ποδῶν θαλπτήρια ταῦτα Βίτιννα,
εὐτέχνων ἐρατὸν σκυτοτόμων κάματον
τὸν δὲ φιλοπλάγκτοιο κόμας σφιγκτῆρα Φιλαινίς,
βαπτὸν ἁλὸς πολιῆς ἄνθεσι κεκρύφαλον:

ῥιπίδα δ᾽ Ἀντίκλεια: καλύπτειραν δὲ προσώπου,
ἔργον ἀραχναίοις νήμασιν ἰσόμορον,
ἁ καλὰ Ἡράκλεια: τὸν εὐσπειρῆ δὲ δράκοντα,
χρύσειον ῥαδινῶν κόσμον ἐπισφυρίων,
πατρὸς Ἀριστοτέλους συνομώνυμος: αἱ συνομήθεις

ἅλικες Οὐρανίῃ δῶρα Κυθηριάδι.

To Aphrodite the Heavenly we girl companions, all of one age, give these gifts: Bitinna these sandals, a comfort to her feet, the pretty work of skilled shoemakers, Philaenis the net, dyed with sea-purple, that confined her straying hair, Anticlca her fan, lovely Heraclea her veil, fine as a spider s web, and the daughter of Aristotle, who bears her father's name, her coiled snake, the gold ornament of her slender ankles.
