Texts


σῆμα τόδ᾽ Αἴαντος Τελαμωνίου, ὃν κτάνε Μοῖρα,
αὐτοῦ χρησαμένα καὶ χερὶ καὶ ξίφεϊ.
οὐδὲ γὰρ ἐν θνητοῖσι δυνήσατο καὶ μεμαυῦα
εὑρέμεναι Κλωθὼ τῷδ᾽ ἕτερον φονέα.

— Paton edition

This is the tomb of Telamonian Ajax whom Fate
slew by means of his own hand and sword. For
Clotho, even had she wished it, could not find
among mortals another able to kill him.
