Texts

οἱ πρὸς Ῥωμαίους δεινὸν στήσαντες Ἄρηα
κεῖνται, ἀριστείης σύμβολα δεικνύμενοι:
οὐ γάρ τις μετὰ νῶτα τυπεὶς θάνεν, ἀλλ᾽ ἅμα πάντες
ὤλοντο κρυφίῳ καὶ δολερῷ θανάτῳ.

— Paton edition

They who took arms against the Romans lie exhibiting the tokens of their valour. Not one died wounded in the back, but all alike perished by a secret treacherous death.
