Texts

σοὶ τὸν πιληθέντα δι᾽ εὐξάντου τριχὸς ἀμνοῦ,
Ἑρμᾶ, Καλλιτέλης ἐκρέμασεν πέτασον,
καὶ δίβολον περόναν, καὶ στλεγγίδα, κἀποτανυσθὲν
τόξον, καὶ τριβάκην γλοιοπότιν χλαμύδα,

καὶ σχίζας, καὶ σφαῖραν ἀείβολον ἀλλὰ σὺ δέξαι,
κωροφίλ᾽, εὐτάκτου δῶρον ἐφηβοσύνας.

— Paton edition

To thee, Hermes, did Calliteles suspend his felt hat made of well-carded sheep’s wool, his double pin, his strigil, his unstrung bow, his worn chlamys soaked with sweat, his arrows (?), and the ball he never tired of throwing. Accept, I pray thee, friend of youth, these gifts, the souvenirs of a well-conducted adolescence.
