Δίνδυμα καὶ Φρυγίης πυρικαέος ἀμφιπολεῦσα
πρῶνας, τὴν μικρήν, Μῆτερ, Ἀριστοδίκην,
κούρην Σειλήνης, παμπότνια, κεἰς ὑμέναιον
κεἰς γάμον ἁδρύναις, πείρατα κουροσύνας:

ἀνθ᾽ ὧν σοι κατὰ πολλὰ προνήια καὶ παρὰ βωμῷ
παρθενικὴν ἐτίναξ᾽ ἔνθα καὶ ἔνθα κόμην.

— Paton edition

Great Mother, who watchest over Dindyma and tlie hills of Burnt Phrygia, bring, O sovereign lady, little Aristodike, Silene's daughter, up to an age ripe for marriage and the hymn of Hymen, the due end of girlhood. For this, dancing at many a festival held in thy courts and before thy altar, she tossed this way and that her virgin hair.
