Texts


τὰν γνώμαν ἐδόκει Φιλέας οὐ δεύτερος ἄλλου
εἶμεν ὁ δὲ φθονερὸς κλαιέτω ἔσκε θάνῃ.
ἀλλ᾽ ἔμπας δόξας κενεὰ χάρις: εἰν ἀίδᾳ γὰρ
Μίνω Θερσίτας οὐδὲν ἀτιμότερος.

— Paton edition

Phileas seemed inferior to none in the gifts of his mind ; let him who envies him go and cry himself to death. Yet but empty pleasure hath a man in fame, for in Hades Thersites is as highly honoured as Minos.
