Δηοῖ λικμαίῃ καὶ ἐναυλακοφοίτισιν Ὥραις
Ἡρῶναξ πενιχρῆς ἐξ ὀλιγηροσίης
μοῖραν ἀλωΐτα στάχυος, πάνσπερμά τε ταῦτα
ὄσπρι᾽ ἐπὶ πλακίνου τοῦδ᾽ ἔθετο τρίποδος,

ἐκ μικρῶν ὀλίγιστα: πέπατο γὰρ οὐ μέγα τοῦτο
κληρίον ἐν λυπρῇ τῇδε γεωλοφίῃ.

— Paton edition

To Demeter the Winnower and the Seasons that tread in the furrows Heronax from his scanty tilth offers a portion of the corn from his threshing-floor and these various vegetables on a wooden tripod— very little from a small store; for he owns but this little glebe on the barren hill-side.
