Texts

τόξα τάδε πτολέμοιο πεπαυμένα δακρυόεντος
νηῷ Ἀθηναίης κεῖται ὑπορρόφια,
πολλάκι δὴ στονόεντα κατὰ κλόνον ἐν δαῒ φωτῶν
Περσῶν ἱππομάχων αἵματι λουσάμενα.

— Paton edition

This bow, resting from tearful war, hangs here
under the roof of Athene’s temple. Often mid the
roar of battle, in the struggle of men, was it washed in the blood of Persian cavaliers.
