κυανέη καὶ τούσδε μενεγχέας ὤλεσεν ἄνδρας
μοῖρα, πολύρρηνον πατρίδα ῥυομένους.
ζωὸν δὲ φθιμένων πέλεται κλέος, οἵ ποτε γυίοις
τλήμονες Ὀσσαίαν ἀμφιέσαντο κόνιν,
ρ. μ.

— Paton edition

Dark Fate likewise slew these staunch spearmen,
defending their country rich in flocks. Living is
the fame of the dead, who steadfast to the last lie
clothed in the earth of Ossa.
