μνῆμα μὲν Ἑλλὰς ἅπας1᾽ Εὐριπίδου: ὀστέα δ᾽ ἴσχει
γῆ Μακεδών ἢ γὰρ δέξατο τέρμα βίου.
πατρὶς δ᾽ Ἑλλάδος Ἑλλάς, Ἀθῆναι: πλεῖστα δε Μούσαις
τέρψας, ἐκ πολλῶν καὶ τὸν ἔπαινον ἔχει.

— Paton edition

Le monument d'Euripide, c'est toute la Grèce, mais ses os
sont à la Macédoine, car c'est elle qui accueillit le terme de
sa vie. Sa patrie, c'est la Grèce de la Grèce, Athènes. Ayant
beaucoup plu de par les Muses, de beaucoup il reçoit la
louange.

All Hellas is the monument of Euripides , but the
Macedonian land holds his bones , for it sheltered the
end of his life . His country was Athens , the Hellas
of Hellas , and as by his verse he gave exceeding
delight , so from many he receives praise .
