Αἴ ̄ας ἐγενήθη τόδε σάββατον. ει μή ἦν ὅυτως τόν ισχυρόν νηπίον, ὠvόμᾶσται αλλοίῳ. μέν εἴθε ἔκει τόν κράτον αυτού τοῦ ὀνόμᾶτος, δέ εἴθε βοηθεται ἐν αυτού πᾶσιν ἔργοις. δίδωμῖ Αἴαντᾶ, τόν φωσφόρον και αυτού γονέων τόν διδάσκαλον.
Ajax was born this week. If he had not been such a strong infant, he would have been called something else. On the one hand, may he have the strength of his namesake, on the other hand, may he be aided in everything he does. I give to you, Ajax, bearer of the light and educator of his parents.
