Λυδὸς ἐγώ, ναὶ Λυδός, ἐλευθερίῳ δέ με τύμβῳ,
δέσποτα, Τιμάνθη τὸν σὸν ἔθευ τροφέα.
εὐαίων ἀσινῆ τείνοις βίον ἢν δ᾽ ὑπὸ γήρως
πρός με μόλῃς, σὸς ἐγώ, δέσποτα, κἠν Ἀίδῃ.

— Paton edition

I am a Lydian, yes a Lydian, but you, master,
did lay me, your foster-father Timanthes, in a
freeman's grave. Live long and prosper free from
calamity, and if stricken in years you come to me,
I am yours, O master, in Hades too.
