Texts

νικήσας τοὺς παῖδας, ἐπεὶ καλὰ γράμματ᾽ ἔγραψεν,
Κόνναρος ὀγδώκοντ᾽ ἀστραγάλους ἔλαβεν,
κἀμέ, χάριν Μούσαις, τὸν κωμικὸν ὧδε Χάρητα
πρεσβύτην θορύβῳ θήκατο παιδαρίων.

— Paton edition

Connarus, on winning the boys’ contest, since he wrote such a pretty hand, received eighty knucklebones, and in gratitude to the Muses he hung me up here, the comic mask of old Chares, amid the applause of the boys.
