by Anacreon (c582BCE - c485BCE)

Εις το πινειν
Language: Greek (Ελληνικά) 
Αγε δη φερ' ημιν, ω παι,
Κελεβην, οπως αμυστιν
Προπιω. Τα μεν δεκ' εγχει
Υδατος, τα πεντε δ' οινου
Κυαθοις, ως ανυβριστι
Αναδευων βασσαρησω.
Αγε δωτε, μηκεθ' ουτω
Παταγω τε καλαλητω
Σκυθικην ποσιν παρ' οινω
Μελετωμεν, αλλα καλοις
Υποπινοντες εν υμνοις
