Texts

τοῦτό τοι ἡμετέρης μνημήιον, ἐσθλὲ Σαβῖνε,
ἡ λίθος ἡ μικρή, τῆς μεγάλης φιλίης.
αἰεὶ ζητήσω σε: σὺ δ᾽, εἰ θέμις, ἐν φθιμένοισι
τοῦ Λήθης ἐπ᾽ ἐμοὶ μή τι πίῃς ὕδατος.

— Paton edition

This little stone, good Sabinus, is a memorial of our great friendship. I shall ever miss you; and if so it may be, when with the dead you drink of Lethe, drink not your forgetfulness of me.

— Paton modified
