Texts


Ἀίδη ἀλλιτάνευτε καὶ ἄτροπε, τίπτε τοι οὕτω
Κάλλαισχρον ζωᾶς νήπιον ὠρφάνισας;
ἔσται μὰν ὅ γε παῖς ἐν δώμασι Φερσεφονείοις
παίγνιον: ἀλλ᾽ οἴκοι λυγρὰ λέλοιπε πάθη.

— Paton edition

Hades, inexorable and unbending, why hast thou
robbed baby Callaeschron of life ? In the house of
Persephone the boy shall be her plaything, but at
home he leaves bitter suffering.
