Texts

ἦλθε καὶ ἐς Μίλατον ὁ τῶ Παιήονος υἱός,
ἰητῆρι νόσων ἀνδρὶ συνοισόμενος,
Νικίᾳ, ὅς μιν ἐπ᾽ ἆμαρ ἀεὶ θυέεσσιν ἱκνεῖται,
καὶ τόδ᾽ ἀπ᾽ εὐώδους γλύψατ᾽ ἄγαλμα κέδρου,

Ἠετίωνι χάριν γλαφυρᾶς χερὸς ἄκρον ὑποστὰς
μισθὸν ὁ δ᾽ εἰς ἔργον πᾶσαν ἀφῆκε τέχναν.

— Paton edition

The son of Paean hath come to Miletus too, to
visit the physician Nicias who every day approaches him with sacrifice, and ordered to be carved for him this statue of perfumed cedar-wood;, promising the highest fee for the delicate labour of his hands to Eetion, who put all his skill into the work.
