Texts


Φωσφόρε σοί Πολύδευκες ἔχω χάριν, οὕνεκεν υἱὸς
Χίλωνος πυγμῇ χλωρὸν ἕλεν κότινον
εἰ δ᾽ ὁ πατὴρ στεφανοῦχον ἰδὼν τέκνον> ἤμυσεν ἡσθείς,
οὐ νεμεσητὸν ἐμοὶ τοῖος ἴτω θάνατος.

— Paton edition

O Pollux, giver of light, I give thee thanks in
that the son of Chilon gained by boxing the green
olive-crown. And if his father seeing his son
crowned, died of joy, why should we complain ?
May such a death be mine.
