Texts

Βιθυνὶς Κυθέρη με τεῆς ἀνεθήκατο, Κύπρι,
μορφῆς εἴδωλον λύγδινον, εὐξαμένη.
ἀλλὰ σὺ τῇ μικκῇ μεγάλην χάριν ἀντιμερίζου,
ὡς ἔθος: ἀρκεῖται δ᾽ ἀνδρὸς ὁμοφροσύνῃ.

— Paton edition

Bithynian Cythere dedicated me to thee, Cypris, according to her vow, the marble image of thy form. But do thou, as is thy wont, give her a great gift in return for this little one; she asks no more than that her husband may be of one heart and soul with her.
