Ζεύξιδος ἡ χροιή τε καὶ ἡ χάρις: ἐν δέ με μικρῇ
κρυστάλλῳ τὸ καλὸν δαίδαλον Ἀρσινόῃ
γράψας τοῦτ᾽ ἔπορεν Σατυρήϊος. εἰμὶ δ᾽ ἀνάσσης
εἰκὼν, καὶ μεγάλης λείπομαι οὐδ᾽ ὀλίγον.

— Paton edition

The colour and the beauty is worthy of Zeuxis ; but
Satyreius painted me on a little crystal and gave the
pretty miniature to Arsinoe. I am the queen's own
image, and no whit inferior to a large picture.
