Ἀδρήστειά σε δῖα, καὶ ἰχναίη σε φυλάσσοι
παρθένος, ἡ πολλοὺς ψευσαμένη, Νέμεσις.
δείδια σόν τε φυῆς ἐρατὸν τύπον, ἠδὲ σά, κοῦρε,
δήνεα, θεσπεσίης καὶ μένος ἠνορέης,

καὶ σοφίην, καὶ μῆτιν ἐπίφρονα. τοιάδε τέκνα,
Δροῦσε, πέλειν μακάρων πευθόμεθ᾽ ἀθανάτων.

— Paton edition

May holy Adrasteia preserve thee, and Nemesis,
the maiden who treadeth in our track, she who has
cheated many. I fear for thy body's lovely form, Ο
youth ; for thy mental gifts and the strength of thy
divine courage, for thy learning and thy prudent
counsel. Such we are told, Drusus,¹ are the children
of the blessed immortals.
