On a Bath

Texts

ξεῖνε, τί νῦν σπεύδεις ὁρόων ἀκεσώδυνον ὕδωρ;
εὐφροσύνης τὸ λοετρὸν ἀπορρύπτει μελεδῶνας:
μόχθον ἐλαφρίζει: τόδε γὰρ ποίησε Μιχαήλ,
ὃς κρατερῆς βασιληίδος αὐλῆς ἡγεμονεύει.

— Paton edition

Stranger, why dost thou quicken thy steps now,
when thou seest the water that cures pain ? This
is the bath of joy ; it washes away care, it lightens
labour. It was built by Michael, the prefect of the
Imperial Palace.
