ἅδε τοι Ἀρχίου υἱὲ Περίκλεες, ἁ λιθίνα γὼ
ἕστακα στάλα, μνᾶμα κυναγεσίας:
πάντα δέ τοι περὶ σᾶμα τετεύχαται, ἵπποι, ἄκοντες,
αἱ κύνες, αἱ στάλικες, δίκτυ᾽ ὑπὲρ σταλίκων,
αἰαῖ, λάινα πάντα: περιτροχάουσι δὲ θῆρες:
αὐτὸς δ᾽ εἰκοσέτας νήγρετον ὕπνον ἔχεις.

— Paton edition

Here stand I, Pericles, son of Archias, the stone stele, a record of your chase. All are carved about your monument; your horses, darts, dogs, stakes and the nets on them. Alas! they are all of stone; the wild creatures run about free, but you aged only twenty sleepest the sleep from which there is no awakening.
