Texts

Ὑλοφόρου τὠγάλμαθ᾽, ὁδοιπόρε, Μικκαλίωνος:
Ἑρμῆς, ἀλλ᾽ ἴδε τὸν κρήγυον ὑλοφόρον,
ὡς ἐξ οἰζυρῆς ἠπίστατο δωροδοκῆσαι
ἐργασίης: αἰὲν δ᾽ ὦ 'γαθὸς ἐστ᾽ ἀγαθός.

— Paton edition

The two statues, wayfarer, are the gift of the wood-
man Miccalion ; but look, Hermes, how the excellent
woodman from his wretched calling managed to give
gifts. The good man is always good.
