θηρευτὴν Λάμπωνα Μίδου κύνα δίψα κατέκτα,
καίπερ ὑπὲρ ψυχῆς πολλὰ πονησάμενον.
ποσσὶ γὰρ ὤρυσσεν νοτερὸν πέδον, ἀλλὰ τὸ νωθὲς
πίδακος ἐκ τυφλῆς οὐκ ἐτάχυνεν ὕδωρ:
πῖπτε δ᾽ ἀπαυδήσας: ἡ δ᾽ ἔβλυσεν. ἦ ἄρα, Νύμφαι,— Paton edition
Λάμπωνι κταμένων μῆνιν ἔθεσθ᾽ ἐλάφων.

toiled hard for his life. For with his paws he dug
into the damp earth, but the lazy water would not

deer he had killed?
