ἀσπίδα ταυρείην, ἔρυμα χροός, ἀντιβίων τε
πολλάκις ἐγχείην γευσαμένην χολάδων,
καὶ τὸν ἀλεξιβέλεμνον ἀπὸ στέρνοιο χιτῶνα,
καὶ κόρυν, ἱππείαις θριξὶ δασυνομένην

ἄνθετο Λυσίμαχος γέρας Ἄρεϊ, γηραλέον νῦν
ἀντὶ πανοπλίης βάκτρον ἀμειψάμενος.

— Paton edition

Lysimachus, who has now exchanged his armour for an old man’s staff, presents to Ares his oxhide shield, the protector of his body, his spear that often tasted the entrails of his foes, his coat of mail that warded off missiles from his breast, and his helmet with thick horse-hair plume.
