Texts

μή σοι τοῦτο, Φιλαινί, λίην ἐπικάρδιον ἔστω,
εἰ μὴ πρὸς Νείλῳ γῆς μορίης ἔτυχες,
ἀλλὰ σ᾽ Ἐλευθέρνης ὅδ᾽ ἔχει τάφος: ἔστι γὰρ ἲση
πάντοθεν εἰς ἀίδην ἐρχομένοισιν ὁδός.

— Paton edition

Let not this, Philaenis, weigh on thy heart, that
the earth in which it was thy fate to lie is not
beside the Nile, but that thou art laid in this tomb
at Eleutherna. From no matter where the road is
the same to Hades.

— Paton edition
