Texts

αὐλὸν καμινευτῆρα τὸν φιλήνεμον,
ῥίνην τε κνησίχρυσον ὀξυδήκτορα,
καὶ τὸν δίχηλον καρκίνον πυραγρέτην,
πτωκὸς πόδας τε τούσδε λειψανηλόγους,

ὁ χρυσοτέκτων Δημοφῶν Κυλληνίῳ
ἔθηκε, γήρᾳ κανθὸν ἐζοφωμένος.

— Paton edition

Demophon the goldsmith, his eyes misty with age, dedicates to Hermes the windy bellows of his forge, the keen-biting file that scrapes the gold, the double-clawed fire-tongs, and these hare's pads that gather up the shavings.
