ἡρώων τὸν ἀοιδὸν Ἴῳ ἔνι παῖδες Ὅμηρον
ἤκαχον, ἐκ Μουσέων γρῖφον ὑφηνάμενοι:
νέκταρι δ᾽ εἰνάλιαι Νηρηίδες ἐχρίσαντο,
καὶ νέκυν ἀκταίῃ θῆκαν ὑπὸ σπιλάδι,

ὅττι Θέτιν κύδηνε καὶ υἱέα, καὶ μόθον ἄλλων
ἡρώων, Ἰθακοῦ τ᾽ ἔργματα Λαρτιάδεω.
ὀλβίστη νήσων πόντῳ Ἴος, ὅττι κέκευθε
βαιὴ Μουσάων ἀστέρα καὶ Χαρίτων.

— Paton edition

In Ios the boys, weaving a riddle at the bidding of
the Muses, vexed to death Homer the singer of the
heroes. And the Neraids of the sea annoited him
with nectar and laid him dead under the rock on
the shore ; because he glorified Thetis and her son
and the battle-din of other heroes and the deeds
of Odysseus of Ithaca. Blessed among the islands
in the sea is Ios, for small though she be, she covers
the star of the Muses and Graces.
