Texts


ὤλεο δὴ πρὸ γάμοιο, Φιλαίνιον, οὐδέ σε μάτηρ
Πυθιὰς ὡραίους ἤγαγεν εἰς θαλάμους
νυμφίου: ἀλλ᾽ ἐλεεινὰ καταδρύψασα παρειὰς
τεσσαρακαιδεκέτιν τῷδ᾽ ἐκάλυψε τάφῳ.

— Paton edition

Thou didst die before thy marriage, Philaenion,
nor did thy mother Pythias conduct thee to the
chamber of the bridegroom who awaited thy prime :
but wretchedly tearing her cheeks, she laid thee in
this tomb at the age of fourteen.
