Ἰναχίης οὐκ εἰμὶ βοὸς τύπος, οὐδ᾽ ἀπ᾽ ἐμεῖο
κλῄζεται ἀντωπὸν Βοσπόριον πέλαγος.
κείνην γὰρ τὸ πάροιθε βαρὺς χόλος ἤλασενἭρης
ἐς Φάρον ἥδε δ᾽ ἐγὼ Κεκροπίς εἰμι νέκυς.

εὐνέτις ἦν δὲ Χάρητος: ἔπλων δ᾽ ὅτ᾽ ἔπλωεν ἐκεῖνος
τῇδε, Φιλιππείων ἀντίπαλος σκαφέων.
Βοιίδιον δὲ καλεῦμαι ἐγὼ τότε: νῦν δὲ Χάρητος
εὐνέτις ἠπείροις τέρπομαι ἀμφοτέραις.

— Paton edition

I am not the image of the Argive heifer, nor is
the sea that faces me, the Bosphorus, called after
me. She of old was driven to Pharos by the heavy
wrath of Hera ; but I here am a dead Athenian
woman, I was the bed-fellow of Chares, and sailed
with him when he sailed here to meet Philip's ships
in battle. I was called Boeidion (little cow) then,
and now I, bed-fellow of Chares, enjoy a view of
two continents.
