Texts

τὰν ὄιν, ὦ Δάματερ ἐπόγμιε, τὰν τ᾽ ἀκέρωτον
μόσχον, καὶ τροχιὰν ἐν κανέῳ φθοΐδα,
σοὶ ταύτας ἐφ᾽ ἅλωος, ἐφ᾽ ᾇ πολὺν ἔβρασεν ἄντλον
Κρήθων καὶ λιπαρὰν εἶδε γεωμορίαν,

ἱρεύει, πολύσωρε: σὺ δὲ Κρήθωνος ἄρουραν
πᾶν ἔτος εὔκριθον καὶ πολύπυρον ἄγοις.

— Paton edition

This ewe, Demeter, who presidest over the furrows, and this hornless heifer, and the round cake in a basket, upon this threshing-floor on which he winnowed a huge pile of sheaves and saw a goodly harvest, doth Crethon consecrate to thee, Lady of the many heaps. Every year make his field rich in wheat and barley.
