Texts

βραδύτερον παρελθόντος
ἑσπέριὸς μ᾽ ἐδάμασσεν ὁμοῦ καὶ πρώιος ὕπνος,
ὅς μὲν ἐπιβρίσας, ὃς δέ με μὴ καλέσας:
ὧν ἐξ ἀμφοτέρων ὁ μὲν ἐρρέτω, ὃς δὲ παρείη
ἵλαος, ὡράων μέτρον ἐπιστάμενος.

— Paton edition

Both evening sleep and morning sleep overcame
me, the latter having been too heavy and the former
not having invited me. Let morning sleep begone
and evening sleep come in kindly wise knowing the
just number of hours.
