Texts

λέκτρα μάτην μίμνοντα καὶ ἄπρηκτον σκέπας εὐνῆς
ἄνθετο σοί, Μήνη, σὸς φίλος Ἐνδυμίων,
αἰδόμενος: πολιὴ γὰρ ὅλου κρατέουσα καρήνου
οὐ σῴζει προτέρης ἴχνιον ἀγλαΐης.

— Paton edition

Thy friend Endymion, O Moon, dedicates to
thee, ashamed, his bed that survives in vain and its futile cover; for grey hair reigns over his
whole head and no trace of his former beauty is left.
