εὐχωλαῖς καὶ πόντον ἐκοίμισε Νόννα θεουδὴς
οἷς τεκέεσσι φίλοισι, καὶ ἐκ περάτων συνάγειρεν
ἀντολίης δύσιός τε, μέγα κλέος, οὐ δοκέοντας,
μητρὸς ἔρως: νοῦσόν τε πικρὴν ἀποέργαθεν ἀνδρός:

λισσομένη, τὸ δὲ θαῦμα, λίπεν βίον ἔνδοθι νηοῦ.

— Paton edition

God-like Nonna stilled the sea by her prayers for
her dear sons, and their mother’s love gathered
them from the extremes of east and west, when they
thought not to return — a great glory to her. And by
her prayers she dispelled her husband’s grave illness,
and (what a marvel !) she ended her life in the church.
