Ἀκρίδι καὶ τέττιγι Μυρὼ τόδε θήκατο σῆμα,
λιτὴν ἀμφοτέροις χερσὶ βαλοῦσα κόνιν,
ἵμερα δακρύσασα πυρῆς ἔπι: τὸν γὰρ ἀοιδὸν
ᾄδης, τὴν δ᾽ ἑτέρην ἥρπασε Περσεφόνη.

— Paton edition

Myro made this tomb for her grasshopper and cicada, sprinkling a little dust over them both and weeping regretfully over their pyre; for the songster was seized by Hades and the other by Persephone.

Imitation de 7.190

Seul le v. 4 est original. C'est pourquoi l'épigramme est introduit aussi à la page 235 au-dessus du 7.190
