ἡ καὶ ἔτ᾽ ἐκ βρέφεος κοιμωμένη Ἀντιοδημὶς
πορφυρέων, Παφίης νοσσίς, ἐπὶ κροκύδων,
ἡ τακεραῖς λεύσσουσα κόραις μαλακώτερον ὕπνου,
Λύσιδος ἀλκυονίς, τερπνὸν ἄθυρμα Μέθης,
ὑδατίνους φορέουσα βραχίονας, ἣ μόνη ὀστοῦν
οὐ λάχεν ῾ἦν γὰρ ὅλη τοὐν ταλάροισι γάλἀ,
Ἰταλίην ἤμειψεν, ἵνα πτολέμοιο καὶ αἰχμῆς
ἀμπαύσῃ Ῥώμην μαλθακίνῃ χάριτι.
