Αἰγιαλῖτα Πρίηπε, σαγηνευτῆρες ἔθηκαν
δῶρα παρακταίης σοὶ τάδ᾽ ἐπωφελίης,
θύννων εὐκλώστοιο λίνου βυσσώμασι ῥόμβον
φράξαντες γλαυκαῖς ἐν παρόδοις πελάγευς,

φηγίνεον κρητῆρα, καὶ αὐτούργητον ἐρείκης
βάθρον, ἰδ᾽ ὑαλέην οἰνοδόκον κύλικα,
ὡς ἂν ὑπ᾽ ὀρχησμῶν λελυγισμένον ἔγκοπον ἴχνος
ἀμπαύσῃς, ξηρὴν δίψαν ἐλαυνόμενος:

— Paton edition

Priapus of the beach, the fishermen, after
surrounding with their deep-sunk net the circling shoal of tunnies in the green narrows of the sea, dedicated to thee these gifts out of the profits of the rich catch they made on this strand—a bowl of beech wood, a stool roughly carved of heath, and a glass wine-cup, so that when thy weary limbs are broken by the dance thou mayest rest them and drive away dry thirst.
