Texts

Πυρσῶ τοῦτο λέοντος ἀπ᾽ ὦν φλοιώσατο δέρμα
Σῶσος ὁ βουπάμων, δουρὶ φονευσάμενος,
ἄρτι καταβρύκοντα τὸν εὐθηλήμονα μόσχον,
οὐδ᾽ ἵκετ᾽ ἐκ μάνδρας αὖθις ἐπὶ ξύλοχον

μοσχείω δ᾽ ἀπέτισεν ὁ θὴρ ἀνθ᾽ αἵματος αἷμα,
βληθείς: ἀχθεινὰν δ᾽ εἶδε βοοκτασίαν.

— Paton edition

Sosus, rich in cattle, flenched this tawny lion, which he slew with his spear just as it had begun to devour the sucling calf, nor went it back from the sheepfold to the wood. To the calf the brute transpierced paid blood for blood, and sorrowful to it was the murder it wrought.
