Texts

Λευκάδος ἀντί με Καῖσαρ, ἰδ᾽ Ἀμβρακίης ἐριβώλου,
Θυρρείου τε πέλειν, ἀντὶ τ᾽ Ἀνακτορίου,
Ἄργεος Ἀμφιλόχου τε, καὶ ὁππόσα ῥαίσατο κύκλῳ
ἄστε᾽ ἐπιθρώσκων δουρομανὴς πόλεμος,

εἵσατο Νικόπολιν, θείην πόλιν ἀντὶ δὲ νίκης
Φοῖβος ἄναξ ταύτην δέχνυται Ἀκτιάδος.

— Paton edition

To replace Leucas, and fertile Ambracia, and Thyr-
reum, and Anactorium, and Amphilochian Argos, and
ail the surrounding cities that the furious onslaught
of war destroyed, Caesar founded me, Nicopolis,
a divine city. Phoebus receives this reward for the
victory of Actium.
