τρεῖς ἐτέων δεκάδας, τριάδας δύο, μέτρον ἔθηκαν
ἡμετέρης βιοτῆς μάντιες αἰθέριοι.
ἀρκοῦμαι τούτοισιν ὁ γὰρ χρόνος ἄνθος ἄριστον
ἡλικίης: ἔθανεν χὠ τριγέρων Πύλιος.

— Paton edition

Three decades and twice three years did the
heavenly augurs fix as the measure of my life. I am
content therewith, for that age is the finest flower
of life. Even ancient Nestor died.
