Texts

θύει σοι τόδε γράμμα γενεθλιακαῖσιν ἐν ὥραις,
Καῖσαρ, Νειλαίη Μοῦσα Λεωνίδεω.
Καλλιόπης γὰρ ἄκαπνον ἀεὶ θύος. εἰς δὲ νέωτα,
ἢν ἐθέλῃς, θύσει τοῦδε περισσότερα.

— Paton edition

On thy birthday, Caesar, the Egyptian Muse of
Leonidas offers thee these lines. The offering of
Calliope is ever smokeless; but next year, if thou
wilt, she will offer thee a larger sacrifice.
