οὐράνιον μίμημα γενεθλιακαῖσιν ἐν ὥραις
τοῦτ᾽ ἀπὸ Νειλογενοῦς δέξο Λεωνίδεω,
Ποππαία, Διὸς εὖνι, Σεβαστιάς: εὔαδε γάρ σοι
δῶρα τὰ καὶ λέκτρων ἄξια καὶ σοφίης.

— Paton edition

Poppaea Augusta, spouse of Zeus,¹ receive from the
Egyptian Leonidas this map of the heavens on thy
natal day ; for thou takest pleasure in gifts worthy
of thy alliance and thy learning.
