ἁ βάκχα Παρία μέν, ἐνεψύχωσε δ᾽ ὁ γλύπτας
τὸν λίθον ἀνθρῴσκει δ᾽ ὡς βρομιαζομένα.
ὦ Σκόπα, ἁ θεοποιὸς ἄπιστον ἐμήσατο τέχνα
θαῦμα, χιμαιροφόνον θυιάδα μαινομέναν.

— Paton edition

The Bacchante is of Parian marble, but the sculptor
gave life to the stone, and she springs up as if in
Bacchic fury. Scopas, thy god-creating art has pro-
duced a great marvel, a Thyad, the frenzied slayer
of goats.
