What Achilles would say on seeing Ulysses in Hades

Codex Palatinus 23, p.437

Texts

ἀτρεκέως πάντων πολυμήχανός ἐστιν Ὀδυσσεύς
ζωὸς ἐὼν ἐνόησεν ἃ μὴ θέμις ἐστὶν ἰδέσθαι,
νερτέριον κευθμῶνα καὶ ἄλγεα πικρὰ θανόντων.
πῶς δ᾽ ἔτλη προλιπεῖν ἱερὸν φάος; ἢ τίς ἀνάγκη

ἤγαγεν οὐκ ἐθέλοντα; δόλων ἀκόρητος ἐτύχθη
ἐν χθονὶ καὶ πελάγεσσι καὶ ἐν νεκύεσσιν Ὀδυσσεύς.
