παίδων Μηδείης οὗτος τάφος, οὓς ὁ πυρίπνους
ζᾶλος τῶν Γλαύκης θῦμ᾽ ἐποίησε γάμων,
οἷς αἰεὶ πέμπει μειλίγματα Σισυφὶς αἶα,
μητρὸς ἀμείλικτον θυμὸν ἱλασκομένα.

— Paton edition

This is the tomb of Medea's children, whom her burning jealousy made the victims of Glauce's wedding. To them the Corinthian land ever sends peace-offerings, propitiating their mother's implacable soul.
