On the Gate of Argos

Texts

τήνδε πύλην λάεσσιν ἐυξέστοις ἀραρυῖαν,
ἀμφότερον, κόσμον τε πάτρῃ] καὶ θάμβος ὁδίταις,
τεῦξε Κλέης Κλεάδας ἀγανῆς πόσις εὐπατερείης,
Λερναίων ἀδύτων περιώσιος ὀργιοφάντης,

τερπόμενος δώροισιν ἀγασθενέων βασιλήων:

— Paton edition

This gate, built of polished stone, both an ornament
for Argos and an object of admiration for travellers,
was erected by Cleadas, the husband of gentle and
noble Clea. He was the excellent hierophant of the
sanctuary of Lerna, and enjoyed the generosity
of powerful monarchs.¹
