Texts

κἀμὲ τὸν ἐν σμικροῖς ὀλίγον θεὸν ἢν ἐπιβώσῃς
εὐκαίρως, τεύξῃ μὴ μεγάλων δὲ γλίχου.
ὡς ὅ τι δημοτέρων δύναται θεὸς ἀνδρὶ πενέστῃ
δωρεῖσθαι, τούτων κύριός εἰμι Τύχων

— Paton edition

If at the right season thou callest upon me too,
little among the lesser gods, thou shalt get thy wish,
but crave not for great things. For I, Tychon,¹ have
in my power to grant only such things as the people's
god may give to a labouring man.
