Texts

μή με κόνι κρύψητε, τί γάρ; πάλι, μηδ᾽ ἔτι ταύτης
ᾐόνος οὐκ ὀνοτὴν γαῖαν ἐμοὶ τίθετε.
μαίνεται εἴς με θάλασσα, καὶ ἐν χέρσοιό με δειλὸν
εὑρίσκει ῥαχίαις: οἶδέ με κἠν Ἀίδῃ.
χέρσῳ ἐπεκβαίνειν εἰ ἐμεῦ χάριν ὕδατι θυμός, † πάρκειμαι σταθερῇ μιμνέμεν ὡς ἄταφος

— Paton edition

Cover me not with dust again. What avails it? Nor continue to put on me the guiltless earth of this strand. The sea is furious with me and discovers me, wretched man, even on the surf-beaten land: even in Hades it knows me. If it is the will of the waves to mount on the land for my sake, I prefer to remain on the firm land thus unburied.
