Texts

ἤδη τῇδε μένω πολέμου δίχα, καλὸν ἄνακτος
στέρνον ἐμῷ νώτῳ πολλάκι ῥυσαμένα.
καίπερ τηλεβόλους ἰοὺς καὶ χερμάδι᾽ αἰνὰ
μυρία καὶ δολιχὰς δεξαμένα κάμακας,

οὐδέποτε Κλείτοιο λιπεῖν περιμάκεα πᾶχυν
φαμὶ κατὰ, βλοσυρὸν φλοῖσβον Ἐνυαλίου.

— Paton edition

Now I rest here far from the battle, I who often
saved my lord’s fair breast by my back. Though
receiving far-flying arrows and dreadful stones inthousands and long lances, I aver I never quitted Cleitus’ long arm in the horrid din of battle.
