Texts

ταῖς Νύμφαις Κινύρης τόδε δίκτυον οὐ γὰρ ἀείρει
γῆρας ἀκοντιστὴν μόχθον ἑκηβολίης.
ἰχθύες ἀλλὰ νέμοισθε γεγηθότες, ὅττι θαλάσσῃ
δῶκεν ἔχειν Κινύρου γῆρας ἐλευθερίην.

— Paton edition

Cinyras dedicates to the nymphs this net, for his
old age cannot support the labour of casting it.
Feed, ye fish, happily, since Cinyras' old age has
given freedom to the sea.
