On a Shell with an image of Love carved inside it

Codex Palatinus 23, p.411

Texts

πρὶν μὲν ἁλικλύστου πέτρας ἐνὶ βένθεσιν ἥμαν
εὐαλδὲς πόντου φῦκος ἐπεννυμένα:
νῦν δέ μοι ἱμερόεις κόλπων ἔντοσθεν ἰαύει
λάτρις ἐϋστεφάνου Κύπριδος ἁβρὸς Ἔρως.

— Paton edition

Of old I dwelt in the depths on a sea-washed rock
clothed in luxuriant seaweed, but now in my bosom
sleeps the delightful child, tender Love, the servant
of diademed Cypris.
