ἄγκυραν ἐμβρύοικον, ἐρυσινηίδα,
κώπας τε δισσὰς τὰς ἀπωσικυμάτους,
καὶ δικτύοις μόλιβδον ἡψιδωμένον,
κύρτους τε φελλοῖς τοὺς ἐπεσφραγισμένους,
καὶ πῖλον ἀμφίκρηνον ὑδασιστεγῆ,
λίθον τε ναύταις ἑσπέρης πυρσητόκον,
ἁλὸς τύραννε, σοί, Πόσειδον, Ἀρχικλῆς
ἔθηκε, λήξας τῆς ἐπ᾽ ᾐόνων ἄλης.

— Paton edition

Poseidon, King of the sea, to thee doth Archicles, now he hath ceased to wander along the beach, dedicate his anchor that rests in the seaweed and secures his boat, his two oars that repel the water, the leads over which his net forms a vault, his weels marked by floats, his broad-brimmed rainproof hat, and the flint that generates light for mariners at even.
