On a Bath

Texts

νύμφαι Νηιάδες, μετανάστιοι, οὐχ ἅμα πάσας
εἴξειν ὠιόμην χεύμασιν ἡμετέροις:
εἰ δὲ τόσην τὸ λοετρὸν ἔχει χάριν, οὐδὲν ὀνήσει
ὁ φθόνος, εἰ Νύμφαι πᾶν ἀπέλειπον ὕδωρ.

Comment

#1

Paton Edition: The spring supplying the bath had failed. It is difficult to see how, as the epigram implies, the bath could retain its charm in the absence of water.
