An Inscription from Syracuse

Texts

ἀρχαῖα τὠπόλλωνι τἀναθήματα
ὑπῆρχεν ἡ βάσις δὲ τοῖς μὲν εἴκοσι,
τοῖς δ᾽ ἑπτά, τοῖς δὲ πέντε, τοῖς δὲ δώδεκα,
τοῖς δὲ διηκοσίοισι νεωτέρη ἥδ᾽ ἐνιαυτοῖς:

τοσσόσδ᾽ ἀριθμὸς ^ ἐξέβη μετρούμενος. .

— Paton edition

The votive offerings to Apollo were old, but as for
the base it is in one case twenty, in another seven,
in another twelve, and in this last case two hundred
years later ; for so the figures work out when
counted.
