Texts

τῆς πέζης τὰ μὲν ἄκρα τὰ δεξιὰ μέχρι παλαιστῆς
καὶ σπιθαμῆς οὔλης Βίττιον εἰργάσατο:
θάτερα δ᾽ Ἀντιάνειρα προσήρμοσε: τὸν δὲ μεταξὺ
Μαίανδρον καὶ τὰς παρθενικὰς Βιτίη.

κουρᾶν καλλίστη Διός, Ἄρτεμι, τοῦτο τὸ νῆμα
πρὸς ψυχῆς θείης, τὴν τριπόνητον ἔριν.

— Paton edition

The right end of the border, measuring a span and a whole palm, is the work of Bitto; the other extremity was added by Antianira, while Bitie worked the girls and the Maeander in the middle. Artemis, fairest of the daughters of Jove, take to thy heart this piece of woven work which the three vied in making.
