κερκίδα τὴν φιλοεργὸν Ἀθηναίῃ θέτο Βιττὼ
ἄνθεμα, λιμηρῆς ἄρμενον ἐργασίης,

πάντας ἀποστύξασα γυνὴ τότε τοὺς ἐν ἐρίθοις
μόχθους καὶ στυγερὰς φροντίδας ἱστοπόνων

εἶπε δ᾽ Ἀθηναίῃ:
τῶν Κύπριδος ἅψομαι ἔργων,

τὴν Πάριδος κατὰ σοῦ ψῆφον ἐνεγκαμένη:

— Paton edition

Bitto dedicated to Athene her industrious loom-comb, the implement of her scanty livelihood, for then she conceived a hatred for all toil among workfolk, and for the weaver's wretched cares. To Athene she said, "I will take to the works of Cypris, voting like Paris against thee."
