οὐκ ἔτλας, ὤριστε Λεωνίδα, αὖτις ἱκέσθαι
Εὐρώταν, χαλεπῷ σπερχόμενος πολέμῳ:
ἀλλ᾽ ἐπὶ Θερμοπύλαισι τὸ Περσικὸν ἔθνος ἀμύνων
ἐδμάθης, πατέρων ἁζόμενος νόμιμα.

— Paton edition

Leonidas, bravest of men, thou couldst not endure
to return to the Eurotas when sore pressed by
the war, but in Thermopylae resisting the Persians
thou didst fall reverencing the usage of thy fathers.
