Texts

Ἀραξόχειρα ταῦτά σοι τὰ τύμπανα,
καὶ κύμβαλ᾽ ὀξύδουπα κοιλοχείλεα,
διδύμους τε λωτοὺς κεροβόας, ἐφ᾽ οἷς ποτε
ἐπωλόλυξεν αὐχένα στροβιλίσας,

λυσιφλεβῆ τε σάγαριν ἀμφιθηγέα,
λεοντόδιφρε, σοί, Ῥέη, Κλυτοσθένης
ἔθηκε, λυσσητῆρα γηράσας πόδα.

— Paton edition

Clytosthenes, his feet that raced in fury now enfeebled by age, dedicates to thee, Rhea of the lion-car, his tambourines beaten by the hand, his shrill hollow-rimmed cymbals, his double-flute that calls through its horn, on which he once made shrieking music, twisting his neck about, and the two-edged knife with which he opened his veins.
