σοὶ τόδε πενταίχμοισι ποδῶν ὡπλισμένον ἀκμαῖς,
ἀκροχανές, φοινῷ κρατὶ συνεξερύσαν,
ἄνθετο δέρμα λέοντος ὑπὲρ πίτυν, αἰγιπόδη Πάν,
Τεῦκρος Ἄραψ, καὐτὰν ἀγρότιν αἰγανέαν.

αἰχμῇ δ᾽ ἡμιβρῶτι τύποι μίμνουσιν ὀδόντων,
ᾇ ἔπι βρυχητὰν θὴρ ἐκένωσε χόλον.
ὑδριάδες Νύμφαι δὲ σὺν ὑλονόμοισι χορείαν
στᾶσαν, ἐπεὶ καὐτὰς πολλάκις ἐξεφόβει.

— Paton edition

To thee, goat-footed Pan, did Teucer, the Arab,
dedicate on the pine-tree this lion’s skin, armed
with five-pointed claws, flenched with its tawny, gaping head, and the very lance he slew it with. On the half-eaten lance-head on which the brute vented its roaring anger, remain the marks of its teeth. But the Nymphs of the streams and woods celebrated its death by a dance, since it often used to terrify them too.
