φάρσος σοὶ γεραροῦ τόδε βότρυος, εἰνόδι᾽ Ἑρμᾶ,
καὶ τρύφος ἰπνεύτα πιαλέου φθόιος
πάρκειται, σῦκόν τε μελαντραγές, ἅ τε φιλουλὶς
δρύππα, καὶ τυρῶν δρύψια κυκλιάδων,

ἀκτά τε Κρηταιὶς, ἐυτριβέος τε ῥόειπα
θωμὸς, καὶ Βάκχου πῶμ᾽ ἐπιδορπίδιον
τοῖσιν ἅδοι καὶ Κύπρις, ἐμὰ θεός: ὔμμι δὲ ῥέξειν
φημὶ παρὰ κροκάλαις ἀργιπόδαν χίμαρον.

— Paton edition

To thee, wayside Hermes, I offer this portion of a noble cluster of grapes, this piece of a rich cake from the oven, this black fig, this soft olive that does not hurt the gums, some scrapings of round cheeses, some Cretan meal, a heap of crumbling ...., and an after-dinner glass of wine. Let Cypris, my goddess, enjoy them too, and I promise to sacrifice to you both on the beach a white-footed kid.
