αἰαῖ Ἀριστοκράτεια, σὺ μὲν βαθὺν εἰς Ἀχέροντα
οἴχεαι ὡραίου κεκλιμένα πρὸ γάμου:
ματρὶ δὲ δάκρυα σᾷ καταλείπεται, ἅ σ᾽ ἐπὶ τύμβῳ
πολλάκι κεκλιμένα κωκύει ἐκ † κεφαλᾶς.

— Paton edition

Alas ! Aristocrateia, thou art gone to deep Acheron,
gone to rest before thy prime, before thy marriage ;
and naught but tears is left for thy mother, who
reclining on thy tomb often bewails thee.
