πᾶσα μὲν Ἀξιόχῳ πόλις εὔχεται: ἄλλο γὰρ ἄλλης
πῆμα παραστείχων, ὡς θεός, ἠκέσατο:
ἔξοχα δὲ κραναῇ ῥόον ὕδατος ὤπασεν Ἄσσῳ,
πολλῶν πετράων σκληρὰ μέτωπα τεμών.

μηκέτι φεύγετε πάντες ἀποπρὸ θέοντες, ὁδῖται:
πλημμύρῳ ψυχροῖς ὕδασιν Ἀξιόχου.

— Paton edition

All cities worship Axiochus, for, on his progress,
like a god he has healed the ills of each. Especially
on rugged Assus did he bestow running water, cutting
through the hard face of many rocks. No longer
run off to a distance, all ye travellers. I overflow
with the cold water of Axiochus.
