ἠπείρῳ μ᾽ ἀποδοῦσα νέκυν, τρηχεῖα θάλασσα,
σύρεις καὶ τέφρης λοιπὸν ἔτι σκύβαλον.
κἠν Ἀίδῃ ναυηγὸς ἐγὼ μόνος, οὐδ᾽ ἐπὶ χέρσου
εἰρήνην ἕξω φρικαλέης σπιλάδος.

ἢ τύμβευέ κενοῦσα καθ᾽ ὕδατος, ἢ παραδοῦσα
γαίῃ, τὸν κείνης μηκέτι κλέπτε νέκυν.

— Paton edition

Thou gavest me up dead to the land, cruel sea, and now thou carriest of the little remnant of my ashes. I alone am shipwrecked even in Hades, and not even on land shall I cease to be dashed on the dreadful rocks. Either bury me, hiding (?) me in thy waters, of if thou givest me up to the land, steal not a corpse that now belongs to the land.
