Texts

Ἄρτεμι, σοὶ ταύταν, ἐυπάρθενε, πότνα γυναικῶν,
τὰν μίαν αἱ τρισσαὶ πέζαν ὑφηνάμεθα.
καὶ Βιτίη μὲν τάσδε χοροιθαλέας κάμε κούρας,
λοξά τε Μαιάνδρου ῥεῖθρα παλιμπλανέος:

ξανθὰ δ᾽ Ἀντιάνειρα τὸν ἀγχόθι μήσατο κόσμον,
πρὸς λαιᾷ ποταμοῦ κεκλιμένον λαγόνι:
τὸν δέ νυ δεξιτερῶν νασμῶν πέλας ἰσοπάλαιστον
τοῦτον ἐπὶ σπιθαμῇ Βίττιον ἠνύσατο,

— Paton edition

Artemis, fairest of virgins, sovereign lady of
women, we three wove this border for thee. Bitie wrought the dancing girls and the crooked stream of winding Maeander. Blonde Antianira devised the decoration that lies on the left side of the river, and Bittion that on the right, measuring a span and a palm.
