Texts

παῖδες, ἄφωνος ἐοῖσα τορ᾽ ἐννέπω, αἴ τις ἔρηται,
φωνὰν ἀκαμάταν κατθεμένα πρὸ ποδῶν:


Αἰθοπίᾳ με κόρᾳ Λατοῦς ἀνέθηκεν Ἀρίστα

ἁ Ἑρμοκλείδα τῶ Σαϋναϊάδα,



σὰ πρόπολος, δέσποινα γυναικῶν: ᾇ σὺ χαρεῖσα

πρόφρων ἁμετέραν εὐκλέισον γενεάν.

— Paton edition

Children, though I am a dumb stone, if any ask,
then I answer clearly, having set down at my feet the words I am never weary of speaking: "Arista, daughter of Hermoclides the son of Sauneus, dedicated me to Artemis Aethopia. Thy ministrant is she, sovereign lady of women; rejoice in this her gift of herself, and be willing to glorify our race."
