Ἀώου προχοαὶ σέ, Μενέστρατε, καὶ σέ, Μένανδρε,
λαῖλαψ Καρπαθίη, καὶ σὲ πόρος Σικελὸς
ὤλεσεν ἐν πόντῳ, Διονύσιε: φεῦ πόσον ἄλγος
Ἑλλάδι: τοὺς πάντων κρέσσονας ἀθλοφόρων.

— Paton edition

To you, Menestratus, the mouth of the Aous was fatal; to you, Menander, the tempest of the Carpathian Sea; and you, Dionysius, did perish at sea in the Sicilian Strait. Alas, what grief to Hellas! the best of all her winners in the games gone
