τοῖς Ἄργει Σπάρτηθεν ἶσαι χέρες, ἶσα δὲ τεύχη
συμβάλομεν Θυρέαι δ᾽ ἦσαν ἄεθλα δορός.
ἄμφω δ᾽ ἀπροφάσιστα τὸν οἴκαδε νόστον ἀφέντες
οἰωνοῖς θανάτου λείπομεν ἀγγελίαν.

— Paton edition

We from Sparta engaged the Argives equal in
number and in arms, Thyreae being the prize of the
spear, and both abandoning without seeking for
pretexts our hope of return home, we leave the birds
to tell of our death.
