Texts

τὰ ῥόδα τὰ δροσόεντα, καὶ ἁ κατάπυκνος ἐκείνα
ἕρπυλλος κεῖται ταῖς Ἑλικωνιάσιν
ταὶ δὲ μελάμφυλλοι δάφναι τίν, Πύθιε Παιάν,
δελφὶς ἐπεὶ πέτρα τοῦτό τοι ἀγλάϊσεν.

βωμὸν δ᾽ αἱμάξει κεραὸς τράγος οὗτος ὁ μᾶλος,
τερμίνθου τρώγων ἔσχατον ἀκρεμόνα.

— Paton edition

The fresh roses and this thick creeping-thyme are
a gift to the Heliconian Muses ; the dark-leaved
laurel branches are for thee, Pythian Paean,
since the rocks of Delphi gave thee this bright
foliage to wear. But thy altar shall be reddened
by the blood of this white horned goat that is
nibbling the end of the terebinth branch.
