Texts

αὐτὸς ἄναξ ἔμβαινε θοῷ πηδήματι, ληνοῦ
λακτιστής, ἔργου δ᾽ ἡγέο νυκτερίου,
λεύκωσαι πόδα γαῦρον, ἐπίρρωσαι δὲ χορείην
λάτριν, ὑπὲρ κούφων ζωσάμενος γονάτων

εὔγλωσσον δ᾽ ὀχέτευε κενούς, μάκαρ, ἐς πιθεῶνας
οἶνον ἐπὶ ψαιστοῖς καὶ λασίᾐ χιμάρῳ,

— Paton edition

Enter the vat thyself, my lord, and tread leaping
swiftly ; lead the labour of the night. Make naked
thy proud feet, and give strength to the dance thy
servant, girt up above thy active knees, and guide,
Ο blessed one, the sweet-voiced wine into the empty
casks. So shalt thou receive cakes and a shaggy
goat.
