Greek/How to write "never give up" in doric greek

Question
Hello my name is Rene, can you help me translate the phrase "never give up" into Doric Greek?
I Selected the doric greek because I always had an admiration for the spartans and I relate this phrase to many things in my life, such as school, work, and sports, and am thinking about getting my first  tattoo with this phrase.  I will appreciate if you can help.  Thanks a lot.

Answer
Hello Rene,

the text is in:

UPPERCASE (original): ΜΗΠΟΘΥΠΕΙΚΕ
lowercase (Alexandrine): μήποθ΄ ὕπεικε

The phrase is so short that there is not noticeable difference between the Doric and Attic dialect.
Have a good day!

Cordially,
Michael
