Εὔρου με τρηχεῖα καὶ αἰπήεσσα καταιγίς,
καὶ νύξ, καὶ δνοφερῆς κύματα πανδυσίης

ἔβλαψ᾽ Ὠρίωνος: ἀπώλισθον δὲ βίοιο
Κάλλαισχρος, Λιβυκοῦ μέσσα θέων πελάγευς.

κἀγὼ μὲν πόντῳ δινεύμενος, ἰχθύσι κύρμα,
οἴχημαι: ψεύστης δ᾽ οὗτος ἔπεστι λίθος.

— Paton edition

The fierce and sudden squall of the south east wind,
and the night and the waves that Orion at his dark
setting arouses were my ruin, and I, Callaeschrus,
glided out of life as I sailed the middle of the
Libyan deep. I myself am lost, whirled hither and
thither in the sea a prey to fishes, and it is a liar,
this stone that rests on my grave.
