Texts


πέντε κόρας καὶ πέντε Βιὼ Διδύμωνι τεκοῦσα
ἄρσενας, οὐδὲ μιᾶς οὐδ᾽ ἑνὸς ὠνάσατο:
ἣ μέγ᾽ ἀρίστη ἐοῦσα καὶ εὔτεκνος οὐχ ὑπὸ παίδων,
ὀθνείαις δ᾽ ἐτάφη χερσὶ θανοῦσα Βιώ.

— Paton edition

Five daughters and five sons did Bio bear to
Didymon, but she got no joy from one of either.
Bio herself so excellent and a mother of such fine
babes, was not buried by her children, but by strange
hands.
