Τυρσηνῆς κελάδημα διαπρύσιον σάλπιγγος,
πολλάκι Πισαίων στρηνὲς ὑπὲρ πεδίων
φθεγξαμένης, ὁ πρὶν μὲν ἔχει χρόνος ἐν δυσὶ νίκαις:
εἰ δὲ σὺ καὶ τρισσοὺς ἤγαγες εἰς στεφάνους

ἀστὸν Μιλήτου Δημοσθένε᾽, οὔ ποτε κώδων
χάλκεος ἠχήσει πλειοτέρῳ στόματι.

— Paton edition

The tyrrhenian trumpet that often over the plain
of Pisa hath uttered shrilly its piercing note, past
time did limit to two prizes. But for that thou hast led Demosthenes of Miletus to three victories, no brazen bell shall ever peal with fuller tone than thine.
