Ἀνδρομάχης ἔτι θρῆνον ἀκούομεν, εἰσέτι Τροίην
δερκόμεθ᾽ ἐκ βάθρων πᾶσαν ἐρειπομένην,
καὶ μόθον Αἰάντειον, ὑπὸ στεφάνῃ τε πόληος
ἔκδετον ἐξ ἵππων Ἕκτορα συρόμενον,

Μαιονίδεω διὰ μοῦσαν, ὃν οὐ μία πατρὶς ἀοιδὸν
κοσμεῖται, γαίης δ᾽ ἀμφοτέρης κλίματα.

— Paton edition

We listen still to the lament of Andromache; still we see Troy laid in ruins from her foundations and the battle-toil of Ajax, and Hector bound to the chariot and dragged under the battlements of the town - all through the verse of Maeonides, the poet whom not one country honours as its own, but all the lands of two continents.
