δῶκε Θεῷ θυσίην Ἀβραὰμ πάιν, ὣς δὲ θύγατρα
κλεινὸς Ἰεφθάε, ἀμφότεροι μεγάλην
μῆτερ ἐμή, σὺ δ᾽ ἔδωκας ἁγνὸν βίον, ὑστάτιον δὲ
ψυχήν, εὐχωλῆς, Νόννα, φίλον σφάγιον.

— Paton edition

Abraham gave his son a sacrifice to God, and
renowned Jephtha his daughter, a great sacrifice in
each case, but thou, my mother, didst give thy holy
life and finally thy soul, the dear victim of thy prayer.
