Texts

τῆς Ἀγοράνακτός με λέγε, ξένε, κωμικὸν ὄντως
ἀγκεῖσθαι νίκης μάρτυρα τοῦ Ῥοδίου
Πάμφιλον, οὐ μὲν ἔρωτι δεδαγμένον, ἥμισυ δ᾽ ὀπτῇ
ἰσχάδι καὶ λύχνοις Ἴσιδος εἰδόμενον.

— Paton edition

Tell, stranger, that I, the mask of Pamphilus, am dedicated here as a truly comic witness of the victory of Agoranax the Rhodian in the theatre. I am not like Pamphilus, bitten by love, but one side of me is wrinkled like a roast fig and the colour of Isis’ lamps.
