Ῥιγηλὴ πασῶν ἔνοσι χθονός, εἴτε σε πόντου,
εἴτ᾽ ἀνέμων αἴρει ῥεῦμα τινασσόμενον,
οἰκία μοι ῥύευ νεοτευχέα: δεῖμα γὰρ οὔπω
ἄλλο τόσον γαίης οἶδ᾽ ἐλελιζομένης.

— Paton edition

Earthquake, most dread of all shocks, whether
thou art aroused by the upshaken currents of the sea
or of the winds, spare my new-built house, for I
know not yet any terror to equal the quivering of
the earth.
