Texts

παῖδά με πενταέτηρον, ἀκηδέα θυμὸν ἔχοντα,
νηλειὴς Ἀίδης ἥρπασε Καλλίμαχον.
ἀλλά με μὴ κλαίοις: καὶ γὰρ βιότοιο μετέσχον
παύρου, καὶ παύρων τῶν βιότοιο κακῶν.

— Paton edition

My name is Callimachus, and pitiless Hades carried me off when I was five years old and knew not care. Yet weep not for me; but a small share of life was mine and a small share of life's evil.
