Texts


ὤλεο δὴ πατέρων περὶ ληίδα καὶ σύ, Μαχάτα,
δριμὺν ἐπ᾽ Αἰτωλοῖς ἀντιφέρων πόλεμον,
πρωθήβας: χαλεπὸν γὰρ Ἀχαιικὸν ἄνδρα νοῆσαι
ἄλκιμον, εἰς πολιὰν ὅστις ἔμεινε τρίχα.

— Paton edition

In thy first youth thou didst perish too, Machatas,
grimly facing the Aetolians in the portion of thy
fathers. It is hard to find a brave Achaean who
hath survived till his hairs are grey.
