On a Garden by the Sea

Texts

ἐνθάδ᾽ ἐριδμαίνουσι τίνος πλέον ἔπλετο χῶρος,
νύμφαι Νηιάδες, Νηρεΐς, Ἀδρυάδες:
ταῖς δὲ θεμιστεύει μεσάτη Χάρις, οὐ δὲ δικάζειν
οἶδεν, ἐπεὶ ξυνὴν τέρψιν ὁ χῶρος ἔχει.

— Paton edition

Here the Naiads, Nereids, and Hamadryads dis-
pute as to who has the best title to the property.
The Grace in their midst sits as judge, but cannot
give judgment, as its charm is common to all.
