On a Dish with the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac

Texts

ἀργύρεος πόλος οὗτος, ὅπῃ Φαέθοντα Σελήνη
δέρκεται ἀντιτύπων πιπλαμένη φαέων:

ἀπλανέες δ᾽ ἑκάτερθε καὶ ἀντιθέοντες ἀλῆται
ἀνδρομέης γενεῆς πᾶσαν ἄγουσι τύχην.

— Paton edition

This is the silver heaven where the Moon gazes
on the Sun, full herself of his reflected splendour,
while on either side the fixed stars and the planets
that move contrary to them work the whole fortune
of the race of men.
