On the Lighthouse at Smyrna

Texts

μηκέτι δειμαίνοντες ἀφεγγέα νυκτὸς ὁμίχλην,
εἰς ἐμὲ θαρσαλέως πλώετε, ποντοπόροι.
πᾶσιν ἀλωομένοις τηλαυγέα δαλὸν ἀνάπτω,
τῶν Ἀσκληπιαδῶν μνημοσύνην καμάτων.

— Paton edition

Sail to me fearlessly, ye mariners, no longer dread-
ing the rayless gloom of the night. For all wanderers
burns my far-flashing torch, keeping alive the memory
of my builders the Asclepiadae.¹
