Texts

Δαμπάδα κηροχίτωνα, Κρόνου τυφήρεα λύχνον,
σχοίνῳ καὶ λεπτῇ σφιγγομένην παπύρῳ,
Ἀντίπατρος Πείσωνι φέρει γέρας: ἢν δὲ μ᾽ ἀνάψας
εὔξηται, λάμψω φέγγος ἀκουσίθεον.

— Paton edition

This wax-robed candle, the rush lamp of Cronos, formed of the pith held together by a strip of thin bark, Antipater brings as a present to Piso; if he lights me and prays, I will give a light signifying that the god hears.
