Texts

α στάλα βαρύθουσα λέγει τάδε:
τὰν μινύωρον τὰν μικκὰν Ἀίδας ἅρπασε Θειοδόταν.
χἀ μικκὰ τάδε πατρὶ λέγει πάλιν:
ἴσχεο λύπας, Θειόδοτε: θνατοὶ πολλάκι δυστυχέες.

— Paton edition

The grave-stone heavy with grief says " Death
has carried away short-lived little Theodota,"
and the little one says again to her father,
" Theodotus, cease to grieve ; mortals are often unfortunate."
