Language: Greek (Ελληνικά) 
Ἤρατο Πὰν Ἀχῶς τᾶς γείτονος, ἤρατο δ̓ Ἀχὼ 
σκιρτατᾶ Σατύρω, Σάτυρος δ̓ ἐπεμήνατο Λύδᾳ. 
ὡς Ἀχὼ τὸν Πᾶνα, τόσον Σάτυρος φλέγεν Ἀχώ, 
καὶ Λύδα Σατυρίσκον: Ἔρως δ̓ ἐσμύχετ̓ ἀμοιβᾷ.
5ὅσσον γὰρ τήνων τις ἐμίσεε τὸν φιλέοντα, 
τόσσον ὁμῶς φιλέων ἠχθαίρετο, πάσχε δ̓ ἃ ποίει. 
ταῦτα λέγω πᾶσιν τὰ διδάγματα τοῖς ἀνεράστοις: 
στέργετε τὼς φιλέοντας, ἵν̓ ἢν φιλέητε φιλῆσθε.
