Texts

εἶπέ ποκ᾽ Εὐρώτας ποτὶ τὰν Κύπριν
ἢ λάβε τεύχη,

ἢ 'ξιθι τᾶς Σπάρτας: ἁ πόλις ὁπλομανεῖ.

ἁ δ᾽ ἁπαλὸν γελάσασα, καὶ ἔσσομαι αἰὲν ἀτευχής,
εἶπε, καὶ οἰκήσω τὰν Λακεδαιμονίαν.

χἀμῖν Κύπρις ἄνοπλος: ἀναιδέες οἵδε λέγουσιν
ἵστορες, ὡς ἁμῖν χἀ θεὸς ὁπλοφορεῖ.

Comment

#1

Paton Edition: 1 There undoubtedly was an armed Aphrodite at Sparta, and it is difficult to see the exact point of this epigram.
