αἱ μίτραι, τὸ θ᾽ ἁλουργὲς ὑπένδυμα, τοί τε Λάκωνες
πέπλοι, καὶ ληρῶν οἱ χρύσεοι κάλαμοι,
πάνθ᾽ ἅμα Νικονόῃ † συνέκπιεν: ἦν γὰρ Ἐρώτων
καὶ Χαρίτων ἡ παῖς ἀμβρόσιόν τι θάλος.

τοιγὰρ τῷ κρίναντι τὰ καλλιστεῖα Πριήπῳ
νεβρίδα καὶ χρυσέην τήνδ᾽ ἔθετο προχόην.

— Paton edition

The snood and purple vest, and the Laconian robes, and the gold piping for the tunic, all fell to (?) Niconoe, for the girl was an ambrosial blossom of the Loves and Graces. Therefore to Priapus, who was judge in the beauty-contest, she dedicates the fawn-skin and this golden jug.
