Texts


τοῦτ᾽ ὀστεῦν φωτὸς πολυεργέος. ἦ ῥά τις ἦσθα
ἔμπορος, ἢ τυφλοῦ κύματος ἰχθυβόλος.
ἄγγειλον θνητοῖσιν ὅτι σπεύδοντες ἐς ἄλλας

ἐλπίδας εἰς τοίην ἐλπίδα λυόμεθα.

— Paton edition

This bone is that of some man who laboured much. Either wast thou a merchant or a fisher in the blind, uncertain sea. Tell to mortals that eagerly pursuing other hopes we all rest at the end in the haven of such a hope.
