τὸν μικρὸν Κλεόδημον ἔτι ζώοντα γάλακτι,
ἴχνος ὑπὲρ τοίχων νηὸς ἐρεισάμενον,
ὁ Θρήιξ ἐτύμως Βορέης βάλεν εἰς ἁλὸς οἶδμα,
κῦμα δ᾽ ἀπὸ ψυχὴν ἔσβεσε νηπιάχου.
Ἰνοῖ, ἀνοικτίρμων τις ἔφυς θεός, ἣ Μελικέρτεω
ἥλικος οὐκ Ἀίδην πικρὸν ἀπηλάσαο.

— Paton edition

When little Cleodemus, still living on milk, set his foot outside the edge of the ship, the thruly Thracian Boreas cast him into the swelling sea, and the waves put out the light of the baby's life. Ino, you art a goddess who knowest not pity, since you did not avert bitter death from this chilf of the same age as Melicertes.
