Texts

τόνδε ποθ᾽ Ἕλληνες ῥώμῃ χερός, ἔργῳ Ἄρηος,
εὐτόλμῳ ψυχῆς λήματι πειθόμενοι,
Πέρσας ἐξελάσαντες, ἐλεύθερον Ἑλλάδι κόσμον
ἱδρύσαντο Διὸς βωμὸν Ἐλευθερίου.

— Paton edition

This altar of Zeus the Liberator did the Hellenes erect, an ornament for Hellas such as becomes a free land, after that, obeying their brave hearts’ impulse, they had driven out the Persians by the might of their hands and by the toil of battle.

— Paton edition
