The Swedish Pompeii Project records the epigram on this picture, and its translation, as:

 

Ὁ θρασὺ[ς] ἀνθέστακεν Ἔρως [τῷ Πανὶ παλαίων],

χά Κύπ̣ρ̣̣ι̣ς ὠ{ι}δ{ε}ίνει, τίς τίνα [πρ]ῶ̣τος ἑλε̣ῖ̣.

[ἰ]σ̣χ̣υ̣ρ̣̣̣ὸς μὲν ὁ Πὰν καὶ καπτερός, ἀλλὰ π̣α̣νοῦργος

[ὁπ]τ[α]νός –και Ἔρως̇ οἴχεται ἁ δύναμις.

 

Bold Love has taken a stand against Pan in a wrestling match,

and Aphrodite is in anguish as to who will take whom first.

Strong is Pan and powerful. But cunning

too is winged Eros. Strength is departing.      [CIL IV 3407, 1]
