Texts

τὴν ἁλίην Εὔδημος, ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἅλα λιτὸν ἐπέσθων
χειμῶνας μεγάλους ἐξέφυγεν δανέων,
θῆκε θεοῖς Σαμόθρᾳξι, λέγων ὅτι τήνδε, κατ᾽ εὐχήν,
ὦ μεγάλοι, σωθεὶς ἐξ ἁλός, ὧδ᾽ ἔθετο.

— Paton edition

Eudemus dedicated to the Samothracian gods
his salt-cellar, by eating much plain salt out of which he escaped dreadful storms of debts. "O great gods,” he said, "according to my vow I dedicate this here, saved from the brine.”
