Codex Palatinus 23 p. 159


κόψας ἐκ φηγοῦ σε τὸν αὐτόφλοιον ἔθηκεν
Πᾶνα Φιλοξενίδης, ὁ κλυτὸς αἰγελάτης,
θύσας αἰγιβάτην πολιὸν τράγον, ἔν τε γάλακτι
πρωτογόνῳ βωμοὺς τοὺς ἱεροὺς μεθύσας.

ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐν σηκοῖς διδυμητόκοι αἶγες ἔσονται
γαστέρα, φεύγουσαι τρηχὺν ὀδόντα λύκου,

— Paton edition

Philoxenides the worthy goatherd dedicated thee, the Pan he carved from an unbarked beech trunk, after sacrificing an old he-goat and making thy holy altar drunk with the first milk of a she-goat. In reward for which the goats in his fold shall all bear twins in the womb and escape the sharp tooth of the wolf.

— Paton edition
