Texts

Ἁρπαλίων ὁ πρέσβυς, ὁ πᾶς ῥυτίς, οὑπιλινευτής,
τόνδε παρ᾽̓᾽ Ἡρακλεῖ θῆκέ με τὸν σιβύνην,
ἐκ πολλοῦ πλειῶνος ἐπεὶ βάρος οὐκέτι χεῖρες
ἔσθενον, εἰς κεφαλὴν δ᾽ ἤλυθε λευκοτέρην.

— Paton edition

Harpalion the huntsman, the old man nothing but wrinkles, offered me, this hunting spear, to Heracles ; for by reason of many years his hands would no longer support my weight and his head is now grey.
