τὸν τῶ Ζανὸς ὅδ᾽ ὗμιν υἱὸν ὡνήρ,
τὸν λειοντομάχαν, τὸν ὀξύχειρα,
πρᾶτος τῶν ἐπάνωθε μουσοποιῶν
Πείσανδρος συνέγραψεν οὑκ Καμείρου,

χὄσσους ἐξεπόνασεν εἶπ᾽ ἀέθλους:
τοῦτον δ᾽ αὐτὸν ὁ δᾶμος, ὡς σάφ᾽ εἰδῇς,
ἔστας1᾽ ἐνθάδε χάλκεον ποήσας,
πολλοῖς μησὶν ὄπισθε κἠνιαυτοῖς.

— Paton edition

This man, Pisander of Camirus, first among the
poets of old time, wrote of the son of Zeus, the lion-
fighter, the nimble-handed, and told of all the labours
he accomplished. Know that the city, after many
months and years, set his very self up here in
bronze.
