Τιμαρέτα πρὸ γάμοιο τὰ τύμπανα, τὴν τ᾽ ἐρατεινὴν
σφαῖραν, τόν τε κόμας ῥύτορα κεκρύφαλον,
τάς τε κόρας, Λιμνᾶτι, κόρᾳ κόρα, ὡς ἐπιεικές,
ἄνθετο, καὶ τὰ κορᾶν ἐνδύματ᾽, Ἀρτέμιδι.

Λατῴα τὺ δὲ παιδὸς ὑπὲρ χέρα Τιμαρετείας
θηκαμένα, σῴζοις τὰν ὁσίαν ὁσίως.

— Paton edition

Timareta, the daughter of Timaretus, before her wedding, hath dedicated to thee, Artemis of the lake, her tambourine and her pretty ball, and the caul that kept up her hair, and her dolls, too, and their dresses; a virgin's gift, as is fit, to virgin Dian. But, daughter of Leto, hold thy hand over the girl, and purely keep her in her purity.
