Texts

μὴ ταχὺς Ἡρακλείτου ἐπ᾽ ὀμφαλὸν εἴλεε βίβλον
τοὐφεσίου: μάλα τοι δύσβατος ἀτραπιτός.
ὄρφνη καὶ σκότος ἐστὶν ἀλάμπετον ἢν δέ σε μύστης
εἰσαγάγῃ, φανεροῦ λαμπρότερ᾽ ἠελίου.

— Paton edition

Do not rapidly unfold to the end of the roll¹ the
book of Heraclitus the Ephesian. The path is very
difficult, and all is mist and unilluminated darkness;
but if one initiated introduce you, it is clearer than
the bright sun.
