νῆά σοι, ὦ πόντου βασιλεῦ καὶ κοίρανε γαίης,
ἀντίθεμαι Κράντας, μηκέτι τεγγομένην,
νῆα, πολυπλανέων ἀνέμων πτερόν, ἧς ἔπι δειλὸς
πολλάκις ὠισάμην εἰσελάαν Ἀίδῃ:

πάντα δ᾽ ἀπειπάμενος, φόβον, ἐλπίδα, πόντον, ἀέλλας,
πιστὸν ὑπὲρ γαίης ἴχνιον ἡδρασάμην.

— Paton edition

O King of the sea and lord of the land, 1, Crantas, dedicate to thee this my ship, no longer immerged in the sea—my ship, bird blown by the wandering winds, in which I, poor wretch, often thought I was being driven to Hades. Now, having renounced them all, fear, hope, sea, storms, I plant my steps confidently on dry land.
