Θεσσαλαὶ αἱ βόες αἵδε: παρὰ προθύροισι δ᾽ Ἀθάνας
ἑστᾶσιν, καλὸν δῶρον, Ἰτωνιάδος:
πᾶσαι χάλκειαι, δυοκαίδεκα, Φράδμονος ἔργον,
καὶ πᾶσαι γυμνῶν σκῦλον ἀπ᾽ Ἰλλυριῶν.

— Paton edition

These cows are Thessalian, and by the gates of
Itonian Athena¹ they stand, a beautiful gift, all of
bronze, twelve in number, the work of Phradmon,
all wrought from the spoil of the naked Illyrians.
