Εὐκαπὲς ἄγκιστρον, καὶ δούρατα δουλιχόεντα,
χὠρμιήν, καὶ τὰς ἰχθυδόκους σπυρίδας,
καὶ τοῦτον νηκτοῖσιν ἐπ᾽ ἰχθύσι τεχνασθέντα
κύρτον, ἁλιπλάγκτων εὕρεμα δικτυβόλων,

τρηχύν τε τριόδοντα, Ποσειδαώνιον ἔγχος,
καὶ τοὺς ἐξ ἀκάτων διχθαδίους ἐρέτας,
ὁ γριπεὺς Διόφαντος ἀνάκτορι θήκατο τέχνας,
ὡς θέμις, ἀρχαίας λείψανα τεχνοσύνας.

— Paton edition

Diophantus the fisherman, as is fit, dedicates to
the patron of his craft these relics of his old
callings his hook, easily gulped down, his long
poles, his line, his creels, this weel, device of
sea-faring netsmen for trapping fishes, his sharp
trident, weapon of Poseidon, and the two oars of
his boat.
