α. ὄλβια τέκνα γένοισθε: τίνος γένος ἐστέ; τί δ᾽ ὑμῖν
ὧδε καλοῖς χαρίεν κείμενὸν ἐστ᾽ ὄνομα;

β. Νικάνωρ ἐγώ εἰμι, πατὴρ δέ μοι Αἰπιόρητος,
μήτηρ δ᾽ Ἡγησώ, κεἰμὶ γένος Μακεδών.

γ. καὶ μὲν ἐγὼ Φίλα εἰμί, καὶ ἐστί μοι οὗτος ἀδελφός
ἐκ δ᾽ εὐχῆς τοκέων ἕσταμες ἀμφότεροι.

A , May ye be blest, ye children. Who are your
parents, and what pretty names did they give to
their pretty ones ?
B. I am Nicanor, and my father is Aeporietus, and my mother Hegeso, and I am a Macedonian.
C. And I am Phila and this is my brother. We are both dedicated here owing to a vow of our parents.
