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

 

θρασ[ς] νθστακεν ρως [τ Παν παλαων],

χ Κπ̣ρ̣̣ι̣ς {ι}δ{ε}νει, τς τνα [πρ]̣τος λε̣̣.

[]σ̣χ̣υ̣ρ̣̣̣ς μν Πν κα καπτερς, λλ π̣α̣νοργος

[π]τ[α]νς και ρως̇ οχεται δναμις.

 

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]
