Texts

ὑμῖν τοῦτο, θεαί, κεχαρισμένον ἄνθετο πάσαις
τὤγαλμα Ξενοκλῆς τοῦτο τὸ μαρμάρινον,
μουσικός: οὐχ ἑτέρως τις ἐρεῖ: σοφίᾳ δ᾽ ἐπὶ τᾷδε
αἶνον ἔχων, Μουσέων οὐκ ἐπιλανθάνεται.

— Paton edition

A gift to please you all, O Muses, this marble statue was dedicated by Xenocles, a musician—who will gainsay it ? and as he has gained fame by this art he does not forget the Muses.
