εἰκόνα πέντε βοῶν μικρὰ λίθος εἶχεν ἴασπις,
ὡς ἤδη πάσας ἔμπνοα βοσκομένας.
καὶ τάχα κἂν ἀπέφευγε τὰ βοίδια: νῦν δὲ κρατεῖται
τῇ χρυσῇ μάνδρῃ τὸ βραχὺ βουκόλιον.

— Paton edition

The little jasper stone is carved with five cows all
looking alive as they feed. Perhaps they would run
away, but now the little herd is confined in the
golden pen.
