Texts


Ἑρμιονεὺς ὁ ξεῖνος, ἐν ἀλλοδαπῶν δὲ τέθαπται,
Ζωίλος, Ἀργείαν γαῖαν ἐφεσσάμενος,
ἃν ἐπὶ οἱ βαθύκολπος ἀμάσατο δάκρυσι νύμφα
λειβομένα, παῖδὲς τ᾽ εἰς χρόα κειράμενοι.

— Paton edition

The stranger is Zoilus of Hermione, but he lies
buried in a foreign land, clothed in this Argive earth,
which his deep-bosomed wife, her cheeks bedewed
with tears, and his children, their hair close cut,
heaped on him.
