Βουστρόφον, ἀκροσίδαρον, ἀπειλητῆρα μύωπα
καὶ πήραν μέτρον σιτοδόκον σπορίμου,
γαμψόν τε δρέπανον σταχυητόμον, ὅπλον ἀρούρης,
καὶ παλινουροφόρον, χεῖρα θέρευς τρίνακα,
καὶ τρητοὺς ποδεῶνας ὁ γατόμος ἄνθετο Δηοῖ
Πάρμις, ἀνιηρῶν παυσάμενος καμάτων.

— Paton edition

Parmis the husbandman, resting from his sore toil, dedicates to Demeter his ox-turning iron-tipped, threatening goad, his hag, measure of the seed-corn, his curved sickle, husbandry's weapon, that cuts off the corn-ears, his winnowing fork, three-fingered hand of the harvest, that throws the corn up against the wind, and his laced boots.
