Texts


εἴ τι παραλλάσσει φαέθων μέγας ἅλιος ἄστρων,
καὶ πόντος ποταμῶν μείζον᾽ ἔχει δύναμιν,
φαμὶ τοσοῦτον ἐγὼ σοφίᾳ προέχειν Ἐπίχαρμον,
ὃν πατρὶς ἐστεφάνως1᾽ ἅδε Συρακοσίων.

— Paton edition

Even as the great burning sun surpasses the stars
and the sea is stronger than the rivers, so I say that
Epicharmus, whom this his city Syracuse crowned,
excels all in wisdom.
