Λυδὴ καὶ γένος εἰμὶ καὶ οὔνομα: τῶν δ᾽ ἀπὸ Κόδρου
σεμνοτέρη πασῶν εἰμι δι᾽ Ἀντίμαχον.
τίς γὰρ ἔμ᾽ οὐκ ἤεισε; τίς οὐκ ἀνελέξατο Λύδην,
τὸ ξυνὸν Μουσῶν γράμμα καὶ Ἀντιμάχου;

— Paton edition

Lyde is my name and I am of Lydian race, and Antimachus has made me more noble than any descendant of Codrus. For who has not sung me, who has not read Lyde, the joint work of the Muses and Antimachus?
