Πεντηκονταέτις καὶ ἐπὶ πλέον ἡ φιλέραστος
Νικιὰς εἰς νηὸν Κύπριδος ἐκρέμασεν
σάνδαλα καὶ χαίτης ἀνελίγματα, τὸν δὲ διαυγῆ
χαλκόν, ἀκριβείης οὐκ ἀπολειπόμενον,

καὶ ζώνην πολύτιμον, ἅ τ᾽ οὐ φωνητὰ πρὸς ἀνδρός:
ἀλλ᾽ ἐσορῇς πάσης Κύπριδος ὀπτασίην.

— Paton edition

Now past her fiftieth year doth amorous Nicias hang in the fane of Cypris her sandals, locks of her uncoiled hair, her bronze mirror that lacketh not accuracy, her precious zone, and the things of which a man may not speak. But here you see the whole pageant of Cypris.
