ὁλκὰς ὕδωρ προφυγοῦσα πολυφλοίσβοιο θαλάσσης
ἐν χθονὸς ἀγκοίναις ὤλετο μητριάσιν.
ἱσταμένην γὰρ πυρσὸς ἐπέφλεγε: καιομένη δὲ
δυσμενέων ὑδάτων συμμαχίην ἐκάλει.

— Paton edition

A ship that had escaped the waters of the boisterous
sea, perished in the arms of its mother the earth.
For fire consumed it where it lay motionless, and as
it burnt it called for the aid of its foe the water.
