Codex Palatinus 23 p. 539

Texts

οὔτε Χίμαιρα τοιοῦτον ἔπνει κακὸν ἡ καθ᾽ Ὅμηρον
οὐκ ἀγέλη ταύρων, ὡς ὁ λόγος, πυρίπνους,
οὐ Λῆμνος σύμπασα, καὶ Ἁρπυιῶν τὰ περισσά,
οὐδ᾽ ὁ Φιλοκτήτου ποὺς ἀποσηπόμενος:

ὥστε σε παμψηφεὶ νικᾶν, Τελέσιλλα, Χιμαίρας,
σηπεδόνας, ταύρους, ὄρνεα, Λημνιάδας.

— Paton edition

Not Homer’s Chimaera breathed such foul breath, not the fire-breathing herd of bulls of which they tell, not all Lemnos nor the excrements of the Harpies, nor Philoctetes’ putrefying foot. So that in universal estimation, Telesilla, you surpass Chimerae, rotting sores, bulls, birds, and the women of Lemnos.
