εἴ τι παραλλάσσει φαέθων μέγας ἅλιος ἄστρων,
καὶ πόντος ποταμῶν μείζον᾽ ἔχει δύναμιν,
φαμὶ τοσοῦτον ἐγὼ σοφίᾳ προέχειν Ἐπίχαρμον,
ὃν πατρὶς ἐστεφάνως1᾽ ἅδε Συρακοσίων.

— Paton edition

Supera il sole immenso col suo bagliore le stelle,
di tutti i fiumi più possente è il mare:
tanto io dico che spicca su tutti per arte Epicarmo,
dalla sua Siracusa incoronato

εἴ τι παραλλάσσει φαέθων μέγας ἅλιος ἄστρων ,
καὶ πόντος ποταμῶν μείζον ἔχει δύναμιν ,
φαμὶ τοσοῦτον ἐγὼ σοφίᾳ προέχειν Ἐπίχαρμον ,
ὃν πατρὶς ἐστεφάνως ἅδε Συρακοσίων .

Even as the great burning sun surpasses the stars
and the sea is stronger than the rivers , so I say that
Epicharmus , whom this his city Syracuse crowned ,
excels all in wisdom .
