Ὅσσαις θηλυτέραις ἐστὶν πόθος ῾ ἔστι δὲ πάσαισ᾽,
δεῦρ᾽ ἴτε, φαιδροτέρης τευξόμεναι χάριτος.
χἠ μὲν ἔχουσα πόσιν, τέρψει πόσιν ἡ δ᾽ ἔτι κούρη
ὀτρυνέει πλείστους ἕδνα πορεῖν λεχέων

ἡ δὲ φέρουσα πόρους ἀπὸ. σώματος, ἑσμὸν ἐραστῶν
ἕξει ἐπὶ προθύροις, ἐνθάδε λουσαμένη.

— Paton edition

Such women as have desire to please (and ye all
have) come here, and ye shall win brighter charms.
She who has a husband will give her husband plea-
sure, and the unmarried girl will stir many to offer
her marriage. And she who makes her living by her
body, if she bathe here, will have swarms of lovers
at her door.
