Τληπόλεμός ὁ Μυρεὺς Ἑρμᾶν ἀφετήριον ἕρμα
[ἱροδρόμοις θῆκεν παῖς ὁ Πολυκρίτεω,
δὶς δέκ᾽ ἀπὸ σταδίων ἐναγώνιον ἀλλὰ πονεῖτε,
μαλθακὸν ἐκ γονάτων ὄκνον ἀπωσάμενοι.

— Paton edition

Tlepolemus of Myra, the son of Polycrites, set me
up here, Hermes, presiding deity of the course, a
pillar to mark the starting point in the holy races of
twenty stadia. Toil, ye runners, in the race, banishing
soft ease from your knees.
