εὔχεσθε τοῖς θεοῖσι τοῖς Ὀλυμπίοις
καὶ ταῖς Ὀλυμπίαισι καὶ τοῖς Πυθίοις
καὶ ταῖσι Πυθίαισι καὶ τοῖς Δηλίοις
καὶ ταῖσι Δηλίαισι τοῖς τ᾽ ἄλλοις θεοῖς,
335εἴ τις ἐπιβουλεύει τι τῷ δήμῳ κακὸν
τῷ τῶν γυναικῶν 'πικηρυκεύεται
Εὐριπίδῃ Μήδοις τ᾽ ἐπὶ βλάβῃ τινὶ
τῇ τῶν γυναικῶν, τυραννεῖν ἐπινοεῖ
τὸν τύραννον συγκατάγειν, παιδίον
340ὑποβαλλομένης κατεῖπεν, δούλη τινὸς
προαγωγὸς οὖσ᾽ ἐνετρύλλισεν τῷ δεσπότῃ
πεμπομένη τις ἀγγελίας ψευδεῖς φέρει,
μοιχὸς εἴ τις ἐξαπατᾷ ψευδῆ λέγων
καὶ μὴ δίδωσιν ἃν ὑπόσχηταί ποτε,
345 δῶρά τις δίδωσι μοιχῷ γραῦς γυνή,
καὶ δέχεται προδιδοῦσ᾽ ἑταίρα τὸν φίλον,
κεἴ τις κάπηλος καπηλὶς τοῦ χοῶς
τῶν κοτυλῶν τὸ νόμισμα διαλυμαίνεται,
κακῶς ἀπολέσθαι τοῦτον αὐτὸν κᾠκίαν
350ἀρᾶσθε, ταῖς δ᾽ ἄλλαισιν ὑμῖν τοὺς θεοὺς
εὔχεσθε πάσαις πολλὰ δοῦναι κἀγαθά.
