Texts

ἀσπίδα μὲν Πρόμαχος, τὰ δὲ δούρατα θῆκεν Ἀκοντεύς,
τὸ ξίφος Εὐμήδης, τόξα δὲ ταῦτα Κύδων,
Ἱππομέδων τὰ χαλινά, κόρυν δ᾽ ἀνέθηκε Μελάντας,
κνημῖδας Νίκων, κοντὸν Ἀριστόμαχος,

τὸν θώρηκα Φιλῖνος: ἀεὶ δ᾽, Ἆρες Ἆροτολοιγέ,
σκῦλα φέρειν δῴης πᾶσιν ἀπ᾽ ἀντιπάλων.

— Paton edition

The shield is the offering of Promachus, the spears of Aconteus, the sword of Eumedes, and this bow is Cydon's. Hippomedon offers the reins, Melantas the helmet, Nico the greaves, Aristomachus the pike, and Philinus the cuirass. Grant to them all, Ares, spoiler
of men, ever to win trophies from the foemem.
