Texts

Δείματό με ξυνοῖο παρὰ προθύροισι λοετροῦ
ἀστὸς ἀνήρ, ἀρετῆς εἵνεκεν, οὐκ ἔριδος.
κεῖνο μέλοι πλεόνεσσιν ἐγὼ δ᾽ ὀλίγοις τε φίλοις τε
ἐντύνω προχοὰς καὶ μύρα καὶ χάριτας,.

— Paton edition

A citizen built me at the gate of the public bath
for excellence, not for competition. Let that serve
many ; I supply water and scent and charm to an
intimate few.
