Texts


ἐν πόντῳ Σώδαμος ὁ Κρὴς θάνεν, ᾧ φίλα, Νηρεῦ,
δίκτυα καὶ τὸ σὸν ἦν κεῖνο σύνηθες ὕδωρ,
ἰχθυβολεὺς ὁ περισσὸς ἐν ἀνδράσιν. ἀλλὰ θάλασσα
οὔ τι διακρίνει χείματος οὐδ᾽ ἁλιεῖς.

— Paton edition

In the sea, Nereus, died Sodamus the Cretan
who loved thy nets and was at home on these thy
waters. He excelled all men in his skill as a fisher,
but the sea in a storm makes no distinction between
fishermen and others.
