Texts


τύμβος Ἀχιλλῆος ῥηξήνορος, ὃν ποτ᾽ Ἀχαιοὶ
δώμησαν, Τρώων δεῖμα καὶ ἐσσομένων
αἰγιαλῷ δὲ νένευκεν, ἵνα στοναχῇσι θαλάσσης
κυδαίνοιτο πάις τῆς ἁλίας Θέτιδος.

— Paton edition

This is the tomb of Achilles the man-breaker,
which the Achaeans built to be a terror to the
Trojans even in after generations, and it slopes to
the beach, that the son of Thetis the sea goddess
may be saluted by the moan of waves.
