Ὑμνῶ τὸν ὑψίζυγον ἐν πρώτοις Δία,
Φοῖβον δ' ἔπειτα καὶ τρίτην τὴν Ἄρτεμιν.
Δῆλον τετάρτην, εἶτα λουτρὰ Παλλάδος,
ἕκτην δὲ τὴν Δήμητραν τὴν παλαιτέραν.
μέλπω δὲ γραὸς τῆς φιλοξένου τρόπη.
καὶ τὴν τελευτέαν τὲ τὴν ἄγραν.
καὶ τῶν μεγίστων αἰτίων τὴν τετράδα.
σκώπτω δ’ ἐπ’ ἀραῖς ἴβον ἀπολλώνιον
καὶ τὴν ἀθηνᾶν ὕστατον μέλπω πάλιν
γρίφω βαθίστω καὶ δυσευρήτιος λόγοις.

Translation(s) Cano gubernatorem supremum in primis Iovem,
Phoebum deinde, tertiam Dianam,
Apollinem quartum, postea lavacra Palladis,
sextam vero Cererem antiquam.
Cano autem vetulae hospitalis mensam,
et mortem et ferae capturam;
et maximarum causarum quaternam seriem.
Irrideo vero imprecationibus Ibin Apollonium,
et postremo Minervam iterum cano,
enigmate profundo et non obviis verbis.
