χαλκὸν ἀροτρητήν, κλασιβώλακα, νειοτομῆα,
καὶ τὴν ταυροδέτιν βύρσαν ὑπαυχενίην,
καὶ βούπληκτρον ἄκαιναν, ἐχετλήεντά τε γόμφον
Δηοῖ Καλλιμένης ἄνθετο γειοπόνος,

τμήξας εὐαρότου ῥάχιν ὀργάδος: εἰ δ᾽ ἐπινεύσεις
τὸν στάχυν ἀμῆσαι, καὶ δρεπάνην κομίσω.

— Paton edition

His brazen share that breaks the clods and cuis the fallows, the leather thong that passes under the neck of the ox, the goad with which he pricks it, and his plough-bolt doth the husbandman Callimenes dedicate to thee, Demeter, after cutting the back of his well-ploughed field. Grant me to reap the corn, and I will bring thee a sickle, too
