ὦ Λακεδαιμόνιοι, τὸν ἀρήιον ὔμμιν ὁ τύμβος
Γύλλιν ὑπὲρ Θυρέας οὗτος ἔχει φθίμενον,
ἄνδρας ὃς Ἀργείων τρεῖς ἔκτανε, καὶ τόδ᾽ ἔειπεν:
τεθναίην Σπάρτας ἄξια μησάμενος.

— Paton edition

O Spartans, the tomb holds your martial Gyllis
who fell for Thyrea. He killed three Argives,
and exclaimed, " Let me die having wrought a deed
worthy of Sparta."
