Θεσσαλίης εὔιππος ὁ ταυρελάτης χορὸς ἀνδρῶν,
χερσὶν ἀτευχήτοις θηρσὶν ὁπλιζόμενος,
κεντροτυπεῖς πώλους ζεῦξε σκιρτήματι ταύρων,
ἀμφιβαλεῖν σπεύδων πλέγμα μετωπίδιον:

ἀκρότατον δ᾽ ἐς γῆν κλίνας ἅμα κεὔροπον ἅμμα
θηρὸς τὴν τόσσην ἐξεκύλισε βίην.

Comment

#1

Paton Edition: 1 It is implied, of course, that the man throws himself off his horse. In Heliodorus (x. 30) the man is described as throwing his arms round the bull's neck and burying his face between its horns, and this seems to be what is meant here.
