Θαυμαρέτας μορφὰν ὁ πίναξ ἔχει: εὖ γε τὸ γαῦρον
τεῦξε τὸ θ᾽ ὡραῖον τᾶς ἀγανοβλεφάρου.
σαίνοι κέν ς1᾽ ἐσιδοῖσα καὶ οἰκοφύλαξ σκυλάκαινα,
δέσποιναν μελάθρων οἰομένα ποθορῆν.

— Paton edition

This is the picture of Thaumareta. Well did the
painter render the bearing and the beauty of the
gentle-eyed lady ! The little house-dog would fawn
upon you if it saw you here, thinking that it looked
on the mistress of its home.
