Ἀλκιμένης ὁ πενιχρὸς ἐπὶ σμικρῷ τινι κήπῳ
τοῦ φιλοκαρποφόρου γευσάμενος θέρεος,
ἰσχάδα καὶ μῆλον καὶ ὕδωρ γέρα Πανὶ κομίζων,
εἶπε:
σύ μοι βιότου τῶν ἀγαθῶν ταμίας:


ὧν τὰ μὲν ἐκ κήποιο, τὰ δ᾽ ὑμετέρης ἀπὸ πέτρης

δέξο, καὶ ἀντιδιδοὺς δὸς πλέον ὧν ἔλαβες.

— Paton edition

Poor Alcimenes, having tasted the gifts of
fruitful summer in a little garden, when he brought to Pan as a present an apple, a fig, and some water, said: Thou givest me from thy treasury the good tilings of life; so accept these, the fruits from the garden and the water from thy rock, and give me in return more than thou hast received.
