θᾶσαι τὸν ἀνδριάντα τοῦτον, ὦ ξένε,
σπουδᾷ, καὶ λέγ᾽, ἐπὰν ἐς οἶκον ἔνθῃς,


Ἀνακρέοντος εἰκόν᾽ εἶδον ἐν Τέῳ,

τῶν πρόσθ᾽ εἴ τι περισσὸν ᾠδοποιοῦ.


προσθεὶς δὲ χὤτι τοῖς νέοισιν ἅδετο,
ἐρεῖς ἀτρεκέως ὅλον τὸν ἄνδρα.

— Paton edition

Look well on this statue, stranger, and tell on thy
return home : " I saw in Teos the statue of Anacreon,
a song-writer most excellent of those of old." And
adding that he took delight in young men, thou
shalt exactly describe the whole man.
