Texts

Ζηνὸς καὶ Λητοῦς θηροσκόπε τοξότι κούρη,
Ἄρτεμις, ἣ θαλάμους τοὺς ὀρέων ἔλαχες,
νοῦσον τὴν στυγερὴν αὐθημερὸν ἐκ βασιλῆος
ἐσθλοτάτου πέμψαις ἄχρις Ὑπερβορέων:

σοὶ γὰρ ὑπὲρ βωμῶν ἀτμὸν λιβάνοιο Φίλιππος
ῥέξει, καλλιθυτῶν κάπρον ὀρειονόμον.

— Paton edition

Archer daughter of Zeus and Leto, Artemis, watcher of wild creatures, who dwellest in the recesses of the hills, this very day send the hated sickness from our best of emperors, forth even unto the Hyperboreans. For Philippus will offer o’er thy altars smoke of frankincense, sacrificing a mountain boar.
