On a Statue of Medea

Texts

οἶκτον ὁμοῦ καὶ λύσσαν ἐτήτυμον ἔνθεος ἀνὴρ
μαρμάρῳ ἐγκατέμιξε, βιαζομένην δ᾽ ὑπὸ τέχνης
λαϊνέην Μήδειαν ὅλης ἔμνησεν ἀνίης.

— Paton edition

The inspired hand infused into the marble both
pity and fury, and made the stone Medea, under the
empire of his art, remember all her griefs.
