Texts

ἡ πολύθριξ οὔλας ἀνεδήσατο παρθένος Ἵππη
χαίτας, εὐώδη σμηχομένα κρόταφον
ἤδη γάρ οἱ ἐπῆλθε γάμου τέλος: αἱ δ᾽ ἐπὶ κόρσῃ
μίτραι παρθενίας αἰτέομεν χάριτας.

Ἄρτεμι, σῇ δ᾽ ἰότητι γάμος θ᾽ ἅμα καὶ γένος εἴη
τῇ Λυκομηδείδου παιδὶ λιπαστραγάλῃ.

— Paton edition

Hippe, the maiden, has put up her abundant curly hair, brushing it from her perfumed temples, for the solemn time when she must wed has come, and I the snood that used to rest there require in my wearer the grace of virginity. But, Artemis, in thy loving kindness grant to Lycomedes' child, who has bidden farewell to her knuckle-bones, both a husband and children.
