ἰχθύσι καὶ ποταμῷ Κλειτώνυμον ἐχθρὸς ὅμιλος
ὦσεν, ὅτ᾽ εἰς ἄκρην ἦλθε τυραννοφόνος.
ἀλλὰ Δίκα μιν ἔθαψεν ἀποσπασθεῖσα γὰρ ὄχθα
πᾶν δέμας ἐς κορυφὴν ἐκ ποδὸς ἐκτέρισεν:

κεῖται δ᾽ οὐχ ὑδάτεσσι διάβροχος: αἰδομένα δὲ
γᾶ κεύθει τὸν ἑᾶς ὅρμον ἐλευθερίας.

— Paton edition

The hostile crowd threw Clitonymus to the fish and the river when he came to the castle to kill the tyrant. But Justice buried him, for the bank falling in honoured with funeral his whole body from head to foot, and he lies unwetted by the water, the earth in reverence covering him, her haven of freedom.
