Texts

ἁ μάτηρ ζῷον τὸν Μίκυθον, οἷα πενιχρὰ
Βάκχῳ δωρεῖται, ῥωπικὰ γραψαμένα.
Βάκχε, σὺ δ᾽ ὑψῴης τὸν Μίκυθον εἰ δὲ τὸ δῶρον
ῥωπικόν, ἁ λιτὰ ταῦτα φέρει πενία.

— Paton edition

His mother, being poor, gives Micythus' picture to Bacchus, poorly painted indeed. Bacchus, I pray thee, exalt Micythus; if the gift be trumpery, it is all that simple poverty can offer.
