Texts

Ἄρτεμι, σοὶ τὰ πέδιλα Κιχησίου εἵσατο υἱός,
καὶ πέπλων ὀλίγον πτύγμα Θεμιστοδίκη,
οὕνεκά οἱ πρηεῖα λεχοῖ δισσὰς ὑπερέσχες
χεῖρας, ἄτερ τόξου, πότνια, νισσομένη.

Ἄρτεμι, νηπίαχον δὲ καὶ εἰσέτι παῖδα Λέοντι
νεῦσον ἰδεῖν κοῦρον γυῖ᾽ ἐπαεξόμενον.

— Paton edition

Artemis, the son of Cichesias dedicated the shoes to thee, and Themistodice the simple folds of her gown, because that coming in gentle guise without thy bow thou didst hold thy two hands over her in her labour. But Artemis, vouchsafe to see this baby boy of Leon’s grow great and strong.
