Texts

οὔ μοι θῆλυς ἔρως ἐγκάρδιος, ἀλλά με πυρσοὶ
ἄρσενες ἀσβέστῳ θῆκαν ὑπ᾽ ἀνθρακιῇ.
πλειότερον τόδε θάλπος: ὅσον δυνατώτερος ἄρσην
θηλυτέρης, τόσσον χὠ πόθος ὀξύτερος.

— Paton edition

The love of women touches not my heart, but male brands have heaped unquenchable coals of fire on me. Greater is this heat ; by as much as a man is stronger than a woman, by so much is this desire sharper.
