What Althaea, entreating Meleager, would say

Texts

τίνας ἂν εἴποι λόγους Ἀλθαία παρακαλοῦσα τὸν Μελέαγρον
τέκνον ἐμόν, γενεῆς ἐπιλήθεαι, οὐδ᾽ ἀλεγίζῃ
πατρίδος ὀλλυμένης, βριαρὴν δ᾽ ἀπόειπες ἀκωκήν,
αἰσχύνων Καλυδῶνα καὶ Οἰνέα καὶ ναετῆρας.

— Paton edition

My son, thou forgettest thy family and heedest
not thy country's fate. Thou hast cast aside thy
strong sword, putting Oeneus and Calydon and her
people to shame.
