Ἤτριά μοι βύβλων χιονώδεα σὺν καλάμοισιν
πέμπεις, Νειλορύτου δῶρον ἀπὸ προβολῆς.
μουσοπόλῳ δ᾽ ἀτελῆ, Διονύσιε, μηκέτι πέμπε
ὄργανα: τίς τούτων χρῆσις ἄτερ μέλανος;

— Paton edition

Thou sendest me thin sheets of byblus, snowy
white, and reed pens, gifts from the headland that
the Nile waters. Do not, Dionysius, send another
time imperfect gifts to a poet. What use are these
without ink ?
