Πραταλίδᾳ παιδεῖον Ἔρως πόθον, Ἄρτεμις ἄγραν,
Μοῦσα χορούς, Ἄρης ἐγγυάλιξε μάχαν.
πῶς οὐκ εὐαίων ὁ Λυκάστιος, ὃς καὶ ἔρωτι
ἆρχε καὶ ἐν μολπᾷ, καὶ δορὶ καὶ στάλικι;

— Paton edition

Love gave to Protalidas success in the pursuit of
his boy loves, Artemis in the chase, the Muse in the
dance and Ares in war. Must we not call him blest,
the Lycastian supreme in love and song, with the
spear and the hunting-net!
