On the Pyramids in Memphis

Texts

Ὄσσαν ἐπ᾽ Οὐλύμπῳ καὶ Πήλιον ὑψωθέντα
ψευδὴς ἱστορίης ῥῆσις ἀνεπλάσατο:
πυραμίδες δ᾽ ἔτι νῦν Νειλωίδες ἄκρα μέτωπα
κύρουσιν χρυσέοις ἀστράσι Πληιάδων.

— Paton edition

Legend invented the false story of Ossa and Pelion
mounted on Olympus. But even yet the Egyptian
pyramids reach the golden Pleiads with their summits.
