ὦ ξυρὸν οὐράνιον, ξυρὸν ὄλβιον, ᾧ πλοκαμῖδας
κειραμένη πλεκτὰς ἄνθετο Παμφίλιον,
οὔ σέ τις ἀνθρώπων χαλκεύσατο: πὰρ δὲ καμίνῳ
Ἡφαίστου, χρυσέην σφῦραν ἀειραμένη

ἡ λιπαροκρήδεμνος, ἵν᾽ εἴπωμεν καθ᾽ Ὅμηρον,
χερσί σε ταῖς ἰδίαις: ἐξεπόνησε Χάρις.

— Paton edition

O heavenly razor, happy razor with which Pamphile shore her plaited tresses to dedicate them. It was no human smith that wrought thee, but beside the forge of Hephaestus the bright-snooded Grace (to use Homer's words) took up the golden hammer and fashioned thee with her own hands.
