Codex Palatinus 23 p. 228

Texts


χαλκῆ παρθένος εἰμί, Μίδα δ᾽ ἐπὶ σήματι κεῖμαι.
ἔστ᾽ ἂν ὕδωρ τε νάῃ, καὶ δένδρεα μακρὰ τεθήλῃ,
αὐτοῦ τῇδε μένουσα πλουκλαύτῳ ἐπὶ τύμβῳ,
ἀγγελέω παριοῦσι, Μίδας ὅτι τῇδε τέθαπται.

— Paton edition

I am a maiden of brass, and rest on Midas'
tomb. As long as water flows, and tall trees put
forth their leaves, abiding here upon the tearful
tomb, I tell the passers-by that Midas is buried here.
