Texts

ἡ τὸ πρὶν αὐχήσασα πολυχρύσοις ἐπ᾽ ἐρασταῖς,
ἡ Νέμεσιν δεινὴν οὐχὶ κύσασα θεόν,
μίσθια νῦν σπαθίοις πενιχροῖς πηνίσματα κρούει.
ὀψὲ Ἀθηναίη Κύπριν ἐληίσατο.

— Paton edition

She who formerly boasted of her wealthy lovers and never bowed the knee to Nemesis, the dread goddess, now weaves on a poor loom cloth she is paid for. Late in the day hath Athene despoiled Cypris.
