Texts

Χριστιανοὶ γεγαῶτες Ὀλύμπια δώματ᾽ ἔχοντες
ἐνθάδε ναιετάουσιν ἀπήμονες: οὐδὲ γὰρ αὐτοὺς
χώνη φόλλιν ἄγουσα φερέσβιον ἐν πυρὶ θήσει.

— Paton edition

The inhabitants of Olympus,¹ having become
Christians, live here undisturbed ; for here they
shall not be put on the fire in the melting-pot that
produces necessary small change.
