οἵδε παρ᾽ Εὐρυμέδοντά ποτ᾽ ἀγλαὸν ὤλεσαν ἥβην
μαρνάμενοι Μήδων τοξοφόρων προμάχοις
αἰχμηταὶ πεζοί τε καὶ ὠκυπόρων ἐπὶ νηῶν:
κάλλιστον δ᾽ ἀρετῆς μνῆμ᾽ ἔλιπον φθίμενοι.

— Paton edition

These men once by the Eurymedon lost their
bright youth, fighting with the front ranks of the
Median bowmen, both on foot and from the swift
ships ; and dying they left behind them the glorious
record of their courage.
