Texts


ὦ παρ᾽ ἐμὸν στείχων κενὸν ἠρίον, εἶπον, ὁδῖτα,
εἰς Χίον εὖτ᾽ ἂν ἵκῃ, πατρὶ Μελησαγόρῃ,
ὡς ἐμὲ μὲν καὶ νῆα καὶ ἐμπορίην κακὸς Εὖρος
ὤλεσεν, Εὐίππου δ᾽ αὐτὸ λέλειπτ᾽ ὄνομα.

— Paton edition

Wayfarer who passest by my empty tomb, when thou comest to Chios tell my father Melesagoras that the evil south-caster destroyed me, my ship, and my merchandise, and naught but the name of Euippus is left
