Γομφιόδουπα χαλινά, καὶ ἀμφίτρητον ὑπειρκτὰν
κημόν, καὶ γενύων σφίγκτορ᾽ ἐυρραφέα,
τάνδε τ᾽ ἐπιπλήκτειραν ἀπορρηκτοῖο διωγμοῦ
μάστιγα, σκαιοῦ δῆγμὰ τ᾽ ἐπιψελίου,

κέντρα τ᾽ ἐναιμήεντα διωξίπποιο μύωπος,
καὶ πριστὸν ψήκτρας κνῆσμα σιδηρόδετον,
διπλοῖς ἀιόνων ὠρύγμασιν, Ἴσθμιε, τερφθείς,
δῶρα, Πόσειδον, ἔχεις ταῦτα παρὰ Στρατίου.

— Paton edition

The bit that rattles in the teeth, the constraining muzzle pierced on both sides, the well-sewn curb-strap that presses on the jaw, also this correcting whip which urges to violent speed, the crooked biting "epipselion," the bloody pricks of the spur and the scraping saw-like curry-comb iron-bound —these, Isthmian Poseidon, who delightest in the roar of the waves on both shores, are the gifts thou hast from Stratius.
