On a Figure of Galeae cut by Tryphon

Codex Palatinus 23, p.449

Texts

Ἰνδὴν βήρυλλόν με Τρύφων ἀνέπεισε Γαλήνην
εἶναι, καὶ μαλακαῖς χερσὶν ἀνῆκε κόμας:

ἠνίδε καὶ χείλη νοτερὴν λειοῦντα ^ θάλασσαν,
καὶ μαστούς, τοῖσιν θέλγω ἀνηνεμίην.

ἢν δέ μοι ἡ φθονερὴ νεύσῃ λίθος, ὡς ἐν ἑτοίμῳ
ὥρμημαι, γνώσῃ καὶ τάχα νηχομένην.
