Texts

δαίμονι τῇ Συρίῃ τὸ μάτην τριβὲν Ἡλιόδωρος
δίκτυον ἐν νηοῦ τοῦδ᾽ ἔθετο προπύλοις:
ἁγνὸν ἀπ᾽ ἰχθυβόλου θήρας τόδε: πολλὰ δ᾽ ἐν αὐτῷ
φυκί᾽ ἐπ᾽ εὐόρμων εἵλκυσεν αἰγιαλῶν.

— Paton edition

Heliodorus dedicates to the Syrian Goddess in
the porch of this temple his net worn out in
vain. It is untainted by any catch of fish, but
he hauled out plenty of sea-weed in it on the
spacious beach of the anchorage.
