Ἀκρείτᾳ Φοίβῳ, Βιθυνίδος ὃς τόδε χώρης
κράσπεδον αἰγιαλοῖς γειτονέον συνέχεις,
Δᾶμις ὁ κυρτευτής, ψάμμῳ κέρας αἰὲν ἐρείδων,
φρουρητὸν κήρυκ᾽ αὐτοφυεῖ σκόλοπι

θῆκε γέρας, λιτὸν μέν, ἐπ᾽ εὐσεβίῃ δ᾽, ὁ γεραιός,
εὐχόμενος νούσων ἐκτὸς ἰδεῖν Ἀίδην.

— Paton edition

To thee, Phoebus of the cape, who rulest this fringe of the Bithynian land near the beach, did Damis the fisherman who ever rests his horn on the sand give this well protected trumpet-shell with its natural spikes, a humble present from a pious heart. The old man prays to thee that he may see death without disease.
