Ἀκμαίη πρὸς ἔρωτα καὶ ἡδέα Κύπριδος ἔργα,
Πατροφίλα, κανθοὺς τοὺς γλυκεροὺς ἔμυσας:
ἐσβέσθη δὲ τὰ φίλτρα τὰ κωτίλα, χὠ μετ᾽ ἀοιδῆς
ψαλμὸς, καὶ κυλίκων αἱ λαμυραὶ προπόσεις.

ᾍδη δυσκίνητε, τί τὴν ἐπέραστον ἑταίρην
ἥρπασας; ἢ καὶ σὴν Κύπρις ἔμηνε φρένα;

— Paton edition

Patrophila, ripe for love and the sweet works of
Cypris, you have closed your gentle eyes ; gone is
the charm of your prattle, gone your singing and
playing, and your eager pledging of the cup. In-
exorable Hades, why did you steal our loveable
companion ? Has Cypris maddened you too ?
