Texts

ἡ κόρυς ἀμφοτέρην ἔλαχον χάριν εἰμὶ δ᾽ ὁρᾶσθαι
καὶ τερπνὴ φιλίοις, καὶ φόβος ἀντιπάλοις.
ἐκ δὲ Πυλαιμένεος Πείσων μ᾽ ἔχει: ἔπρεπεν ἄλλαις
οὔτε κόρυς χαίταις, οὔτε κόμη κόρυθι.

— Paton edition

I, the helm, am graced by two gifts. I am lovely
to look on for friends and a terror to foes. Piso
hath me from Pylaemenes. No other helmet was
fit to sit on his head, no other head fit to wear me.
