Texts

αἶαν ὅλην νήσους τε διιπταμένη σὺ χελιδών,
Μηδείης γραπτῇ πυκτίδι νοσσοτροφεῖς:
ἔλπῃ δ᾽ ὀρταλίχων πίστιν σέο τήνδε φυλάξειν
Κολχίδα, μηδ᾽ ἰδίων φεισαμένην τεκέων;

— Paton edition

After flying, swallow, across the whole earth and
the islands, thou dost rear thy brood on the picture
of Medea. Dost thou believe that the Colchian
woman who did not spare even her own children
will keep her faith to thy young?
