What Deidamia would say when Pyrrhus had sacked Troy

Texts

πᾶσαν ἐμῆς κραδίης χαλεπὴν ἀπέπαυσας ἀνίην,
ὑμετέρου γενετῆρος Ἀχιλλέος εἵνεκα πότμου,
ὃν Τροίη στονόεσσα κατέκτανεν. ἀλλὰ σὺ πᾶσαν
Ἴλιον ἐξαλάπαξας: ἐελδομένοισι δ᾽ Ἀχαιοῖς

ἄφθιτον ὤπασας εὖχος,
μὴ δεκέτηρος ἐνυοῦς
πᾶσιν μαρναμένοις Δαναοῖς χρόνος εὗρεν ἀνύσσαι.

— Paton edition

Thou hast made to cease all the heavy woe of my
heart for the fate of thy father Achilles, whom
mournful Troy slew. To the Greeks who were
eager for it thou hast given the undying glory which
the ten years of war could not accomplish for the
whole host of the Danai.
