καὶ Μακεδὼν ὁ σίδηρος ἐν ἄορι, καὶ τὰ πρὸς ἀλκὴν
τῆς ἀπ᾽ Ἀλεξάνδρου χειρὸς ἐπιστάμενος,
Πείσων, σὴν ποθέων ἱκόμην χέρα: τοῦτο δὲ φωνῶ:

χαίρων δεξιτερὴν εὗρον ὀφειλομένην.

— Paton edition

A sword made of Macedonian steel and taught
valiance by the hand of Alexander, I come, Piso,¹
longing for thy hand, and thus I greet thee : " I
rejoice to find the right hand for which fate re-
served me.
