Texts

λάθρῃ κοιμηθεῖσα Φιλαίνιον εἰς Ἀγαμήδους
κόλπους τὴν φαιὴν εἰργάσατο χλανίδα.
αὐτὴ Κύπρις ἔριθος: ἐΰκλωστον δὲ γυναικῶν
νῆμα καὶ ἠλακάτην ἀργὸς ἔχοι τάλαρος.

— Paton edition

Philaenion, by sleeping secretly in Agamedes’ bosom, wrought for herself the grey robe. Cypins herself was the weaver; but may women’s well-spun thread and spindles lie idle in the work-basket.
