Κρηθίδα τὴν πολύμυθον, ἐπισταμένην καλὰ παίζειν,
δίζηνται Σαμίων πολλάκι θυγατέρες,
ἡδίστην συνέριθον, ἀείλαλον: ἡ δ᾽ ἀποβρίζει
ἐνθάδε τὸν πάσαις ὕπνον ὀφειλόμενον.

— Paton edition

Often do the daughters of Samos miss prattling
Crethis who could sport so well, their sweetest workmate, never silent ; but she sleeps here the sleep that is the portion of all.

— Paton edition
