Texts

Δοῦρας Ἀλεξάνδροιο: λέγει δέ σε γράμματ᾽ ἐκεῖνον
ἐκ πολέμου θέσθαι σύμβολον Ἀρτέμιδι
ὅπλον ἀνικήτοιο βραχίονος. ἆ καλὸν ἔγχος,
ᾧ πόντος καὶ χθὼν εἶκε κραδαινομένῳ.

ἵλαθι, δοῦρας ἀταρβές: ἀεὶ δέ σε πᾶς τις ἀθρήσας
ταρβήσει, μεγάλης μνησάμενος παλάμης.

— Paton edition

The spear of Alexander; the inscription on thee
tells that after the war he dedicated thee to Artemis as a token thereof, the weapon of his invincible arm. O good spear, before the shaking of which earth and sea yielded ! Hail, fearless spear! and ever all who look on thee will tremble, mindful of that mighty hand.
