1.—ΦΙΛΙΠΠΟΥ

Πεντάμετρον μόνον

Χαῖρε θεὰ Παφίη· σὴν γὰρ ἀεὶ δύναμιν κάλλος τ᾿ ἀθάνατον καὶ σέβας ἱμερόεν πάντες τιμῶσιν θνατοὶ ἐφαμέριοι ἐν πᾶσιν μύθοις ἔργοισίν τε καλοῖς· 5πάντη γὰρ πᾶσιν σὴν δηλοῖς τιμήν.

2.—ΦΑΙΔΙΜΟΥ

Τρίμετρον

Καλλίστρατός σοι, Ζηνὸς ὦ διάκτορε, ἔθηκε μορφῆς ξυνὸν ἥλικος τύπον· Κηφισιεὺς ὁ κοῦρος· ᾧ χαρείς, ἄναξ, Ἀπολλοδώρου παῖδα καὶ πάτραν σάω.

3.—ΘΕΟΚΡΙΤΟΥ

Χωλὸν τρίμετρον

Ὁ μουσοποιὸς ἐνθάδ᾿ Ἱππῶναξ κεῖται. εἰ μὲν πονηρός, μὴ ποτέρχευ τῷ τύμβῳ· εἰ δ᾿ ἐσσὶ κρήγυός τε καὶ παρὰ χρηστῶν, θαρσέων καθίζευ. κἢν θέλῃς, ἀπόβριξον.

Epigrams in Various Metres

1.—Philippus

(Pentameters only)

Hail, Paphian goddess! For all mortals, creatures of the day, ever honour by all fair words and works thy power and immortal beauty and loveable majesty; for ever and to all dost thou manifest thy dignity.

2.—Phaedimus

(Iambic trimeters)

Callistratus dedicated to thee, Hermes, messenger of Zeus, this statue of a youth of like age with himself, the common image of thee and him. The young man is of the deme of Cephissia. Rejoicing in his gift, O Lord, protect the son of Apollodorus and his native place.

3.—Theocritus

(Scazon iambic trimeters)

Here lies Hipponax, the maker of verse. If thou art wicked, approach not the tomb, but if thou art good and comest of a good stock, sit thee down fearlessly, and if thou be so minded, fall asleep.
