Κύπριδι κεῖσο, λάγυνε μεθυσφαλές, αὐτίκα δῶρον
κεῖσο, κασιγνήτη νεκταρέης κύλικος,
βακχιάς, ὑγρόφθογγε, συνέστιε δαιτὸς ἐίσης,
στειναύχην ψήφου συμβολικῆς θύγατερ,


θνητοῖς αὐτοδίδακτε διήκονε, μύστι φιλούντων
ἡδίστη, δείπνων ὅπλον ἑτοιμότατον
εἴης ἐκ Μάρκου γέρας ἀγλαόν, ὃς σέ, φίλοινε,
ᾔνεσεν, ἀρχαίην σύμπλανον ἀνθέμενος.

— Paton edition

Rest here, consecrated to Cypris henceforth, my tipsy flagon, sister of the sweet wine-cup, devotee of Bacchus, liquid-voiced, boon-companion in the "equal feast," slim-necked daughter of our dining club, self-taught minister of men, sweetest confidant of lovers, ever ready to serve at the banquet; rest here, a lordly gift from Marcus who sang thy praises, thou tippler, when he dedicated thee, the old companion of his wanderings.
