τὸν σκοπὸν Εὐβοίης ἁλικύμονος ᾖσεν Ἀριστὼ
Ναύπλιον ἐκ μολπῆς δ᾽ ὁ θρασὺς ἐφλεγόμην.
ὁ ψεύστης δ᾽ ὑπὸ νύκτα Καφηρείης ἀπὸ πέτρης
πυρσὸς ἐμὴν μετέβη δυσμόρον ἐς κραδίην.

— Paton edition

Aristo sung of Nauplius, the watchman of sea-
beaten Euboea, and the song set me on fire, valiant
as I am. The flame of that false beacon shown
in the night from the rock of Caphereus caught
my ill-fated heart.¹
