τὸ ῥόπαλον τῷ Πανὶ καὶ ἰοβόλον Πολύαινος
τόξον καὶ κάπρου τούσδε καθᾶψε πόδας,
καὶ ταύταν γωρυτόν, ἐπαυχένιόν τε κυνάγχαν
θῆκεν ὀρειάρχᾳ δῶρα συαγρεσίης.

ἀλλ᾽, ὦ Πὰν σκοπιῆτα, καὶ εἰσοπίσω Πολύαινον
εὔαγρον πέμποις, υἱέα Σιμύλεω.

— Paton edition

Polyaenus hung here as a gift to Pan the club,
the bow and these boar s feet. Also to the Lord of the lulls he dedicated this quiver and the dog-collar, gifts of thanks for his success in boar-hunting. But do thou, O Pan the scout, send home Polyaenus, the son of Symilas, in future, too, laden with spoils of the chase.
