Texts

Μυριόπουν σκολόπενδραν ὑπ᾽ Ὠρίωνι κυκηθεὶς
πόντος Ἰαπύγων ἔβρας1᾽ ἐπὶ σκοπέλους:
καὶ τόδ᾽ ἀπὸ βλοσυροῦ σελάχευς μέγα πλευρὸν ἀνῆψαν
δαίμοσι βουφόρτων κοίρανοι εἰκοσόρων,

— Paton edition

The sea disturbed under the rays of Orion washed ashore this thousand-footed scolopendra on the rocks of lapygia, and the masters of the deep-laden twenty-oared galleys dedicated to the gods this vast rib of the hideous monster.
