I think this is "What is yours (TA SA) from what is yours (EK TWN SWN) we
offer to you (SOI PROSFEROMEN) on every occasion (KATA PANTA) and for
every reason (DIA PANTA)."
There may be other accounts of the phrases KATA PANTA and DIA PANTA.
Another way to express the idea, as I understand it, and in English that
better fits normal English usage is: "Whatever we offer you, whatever the
occasion and whatever the reason that we offer it, it belongs to you and
comes from you."
