ἥρως Αἰετίωνος ἐπίσταθμος Ἀμφιπολίτεω
ἵδρυμαι μικρῷ μικρὸς ἐπὶ προθύρῳ,

λοξὸν ὄφιν καὶ μοῦνον ἔχων ξίφος: ἀνδρὶ † ιπείωι
θυμωθεὶς πεζὸν κἀμὲ παρῳκίσατο.

— Paton edition

I, the hero¹ who guard the stable of Aeetion of
Amphipolis, stand here, small myself and in a small
porch, carrying nothing but a wriggling snake and a
sword. Having lost his temper with .... he did
not give me a mount either when he put me up beside
him.

Comment

#1

Paton Edition: 1 The name of the hero is not given. He complains that though the guardian of a stable he was not mounted, but the last couplet is corrupt and very obscure.
