Texts

Ταύρου βαθὺν τένοντα, καὶ σιδαρέους
Ἄτλαντος ὤμους, καὶ κόμαν Ἡρακλέους
σεμνὰν θ᾽ ὑπήναν, καὶ λέοντος ὄμματα
Μιλησίου γίγαντος οὐδ᾽ Ὀλύμπιος
Ζεὺς ἀτρόμητος εἶδεν, ἄνδρας ἡνίκα
πυγμὰν ἐνίκα Νικοφῶν Ὀλύμπια,

— Paton edition

The thick bull neck, the iron shoulders like Atlas, the hair and reverend beard like Heracles, and the lion-eyes of the Milesian giant not even Olympian Zeus saw without trembling, when Nicophon won the men’s boxing contest in the Olympian games.
