Ἰλιάς, ὦ μέγα ἔργον,
Ὀδυσσείης τε τὸ σῶφρον
γράμμα, τὸ καὶ Τροίῃ θῆκεν ἴσην Ἰθάκην,
τόν με γέροντ᾽ αὔξοιτ᾽ ἐς ἀεὶ νέον ἡ γὰρ Ὁμήρου
σειρὴν ὑμετέρων ῥεῖται ἀπὸ στομάτων.

— Paton edition

Iliad, thou great work, and Odyssey, chaste poem,
that hast made Ithaca Troy's equal, make me, the
old man, grow in eternal youth ; for from your lips
flows the Siren song of Homer.
