ἤθελε μὲν βασιλεύς σε βοηθόον εἰσέτι πέμπειν
ἄστεσι τειρομένοις δευομένων μερόπων,
Τητιανὲ χρύσειε: σὺ δ᾽ ἐν βιότοιο γαλήνῃ
πατρίδα καὶ κλῆρον σὸν προβέβουλας ἔχειν,

αὔξων σῶν προγόνων κτέρας ἔνδικον ἀρχομένων γὰρ
πλοῦτον ὅτι στυγέεις σύνθρονος οἶδε Δίκη.

— Paton edition

Golden Tetianus, the Emperor wished to send you
again to the distressed cities which had need of you ;
but you preferred a peaceful life, keeping to your
home and inheritance, and increasing the righteously
acquired fortune of your house. For Justice, en-
throned beside you, knows that you loathe to touch
wealth won from those you rule.
