τὴν Φρυγίην Αἴσχρην, ἀγαθὸν γάλα, πᾶσιν ἐν ἐσθλοῖς
Μίκκος καὶ ζωὴν οὖσαν ἐγηροκόμει,
καὶ φθιμένην ἀνέθηκεν, ἐπεσσομένοισιν ὁρᾶσθαι
ἡ γρηῢς μαστῶν ὡς ἀπέχει χάριτας.

— Paton edition

On Phrygian Aeschra, his good nurse, did Miccus
while she lived bestow every comfort that soothes
old age, and when she died he erected her statue,
that future generations may see how he rewarded the
old woman for her milk.
