Μακύνου τείχη, Ζεῦ Ὀλύμπιε: πάντα Φιλίππῳ
ἀμβατά: χαλκείας κλεῖε πύλας μακάρων.
χθὼν μὲν δὴ καὶ πόντος ὑπὸ σκήπτροισι Φιλίππου
δέδμηται: λοιπὰ δ᾽ ἁ πρὸς Ὄλυμπον ὁδός.

Comment

#1

Paton Edition: 1 The epigram is of course ironical. Alcaeus, as the next epigram shows, was the bitter enemy of King Philip V.
