On an Inn situated between the Zeuxippus and the Hippodrome

Texts

ἐν μὲν τῇ Ζεύξιππον ἔχω πέλας, ἡδὺ λοετρὸν
ἐκ δ᾽ ἑτέρης ἵππων χῶρον ἀεθλοφόρων.
τοὺς ῥα θεησάμενος, καὶ τῷδ᾽ ἔνι χρῶτα λοέσσας
δεῦρο καὶ ἄμπνευσον δαιτὶ παρ᾽ ἡμετέρῃ:
καί κε πάλιν σταδίοις ποτὶ δείελον ὥριος ἔλθοις,
ἐγγύθεν ἐγγὺς ἰὼν γείτονος ἐκ θαλάμου.

— Paton edition

On the one side I have close by me the Zeuxippus,
a pleasant bath, and on the other the race-course.
After seeing the races at the latter and taking a bath
in the former, come and rest at my hospitable table.
Then in the afternoon you will be in plenty of time
for the other races, reaching the course from your
room quite near at hand.
