Texts

Εὐμαθίην ᾐτεῖτο διδοὺς ἐμὲ Σῖμος ὁ Μίκκου
ταῖς Μούσαις: αἱ δέ, Γλαῦκος ὅκως, ἔδοσαν
ἀντ᾽ ὀλίγου μέγα δῶρον ἐγὼ δ᾽ ἀνὰ τῇδε κεχηνὼς
κεῖμαι τοῦ Σαμίου διπλόον, ὁ τραγικὸς

παιδαρίων Διόνυσος ἐπήκοος: οἱ δὲ λέγουσιν,

ἱερὸς ὁ πλόκαμος, τοὐμὸν ὄνειαρ ἐμοί.

— Paton edition

Simos, son of Miccus, when be gave me to the
Muses, prayed for learning, and they gave it him like Glaucus, a great gift in return for a little. I hang dedicated here (in the school), the tragic mask of Dionysus, yawning twice as much as the Samian’s letter as I listen to the boys, and they go on saying "My hair is holy,” telling me my own dream.
