γαῖα φίλη, τὸν πρέσβυν Ἀμύντιχον ἔνθεο κόλποις,
πολλῶν μνησαμένη τῶν ἐπὶ σοὶ καμάτων.
καὶ γὰρ ἀειπέταλόν σοι ἐνεστήριξεν ἐλαίην
πολλάκι, καὶ Βρομίου κλήμασιν ἠγλάισεν,
καὶ Δηοῦς ἔπλησε, καὶ ὕδατος αὔλακας ἕλκων
θῆκε μὲν εὐλάχανον, θῆκε δ᾽ ὀπωροφόρον.
ἀνθ᾽ ὧν σὺ πρηεῖα κατὰ κροτάφου πολιοῖο
κεῖσο, καὶ εἰαρινὰς ἀνθοκόμει βοτάνας.

— Paton edition

Dear Earth, receive old Amyntichus in the bosom, mindful of all his toil for you. Many an evergreen olive he planted in you and with the vines of Bacchus he decked you; he caused you to abound in corn, and guilding the water in channels he made you rich in pot-herbs and fruit. Therefore lie gently on his grey temples and cloth him in many flowers in spring.
