Texts

ἄλλος ὁ Χῖος: ἐγὼ δὲ Θεόκριτος, ὃς τάδ᾽ ἔγραψα,
εἷς ἀπὸ τῶν πολλῶν εἰμὶ Συρακοσίων,
υἱὸς Πραξαγόραο περικλειτῆς τε Φιλίννης:
μοῦσαν δ᾽ ὀθνείαν οὔ τιν᾽ ἐφελκυσάμαν.

— Paton edition

The Chian Theocritus¹ is another, but I, the Theo-
critus who wrote these poems, am one of the many
Syracusans, the son of Praxagoras and noble Philinna.
I admitted no verse that is other than genuine.
