Texts


Κλειδοῦχοι νεκύων, πάσας Ἀίδαο κελεύθους
φράγνυτε: καὶ στομίοις κλεῖθρα δέχοισθε, πύλαι.
αὐτὸς ἐγὼν Ἀίδας ἐνέπω: Γερμανικὸς ἄστρων,
οὐκ ἐμός: οὐ χωρεῖ νῆα τόσην Ἀχέρων.

— Paton edition

Ye janitors of the dead, block all the roads of Hades, and be bolted, ye entrance doors. I myself, Hades, order it. Germanicus belongs to the stars, not to me; Acheron has no room for so great a ship.
