καὶ γενέταν τοῦ νέρθε καὶ οὔνομα καὶ χθόνα φώνει,
στάλα, καὶ ποίᾳ κηρὶ δαμεὶς ἔθανε. —


πατὴρ μὲν Πρίαμος, γᾶ δ᾽ Ἴλιον, οὔνομα δ᾽ Ἕκτωρ,

ὦνερ, ὑπὲρ πάτρας δ᾽ ὤλετο μαρνάμενος.

— Paton edition

Tell, O column, the parentage of him beneath you
and his name and country and by what death he
died. "His father was Priam, his country Ilion, his
name Hector, and he perished fighting for his native
land."

Confusion entre les auteurs "Archias"

Les lemmatistes sont confus entre les différents auteurs simplement nommés "Archias" par les compilateurs: s'agit-il d'Archias d'Antioche, Archias de Mytilène, d'Archias de Byzance? De plus, l'existence même d'Archias de Macédoine semble improbable
