Ο]Ἰ ΜῈΝ ἸΠΠΉΩΝ ΣΤΡΌΤΟΝ (ODE AD ANATTORIA /FRAMMENTO 16 V.)A TROOP OF HORSE (ODE TO ANACTORIA / FRAGMENT 16 V.)
Ο]ἰ μὲν ἰππήων στρότον οἰ δὲ πέσδων
οἰ δὲ νάων φαῖσ’ ἐπ[ὶ] γᾶν μέλαι[ν]αν
ἔμμεναι κάλλιστον, ἔγω δὲ κῆν ὄτ -
τω τις ἔραται•
A troop of horse, the serried ranks of marchers,
A noble fleet, some think these of all on earth
Most beautiful. For me naught else regarding
Is my beloved.
πά]γχυ δ᾽εὔμαρες σύνετον πόησαι
πάντι τ[ο]ῦτ᾽, ἀ γὰρ πόλυ περσκόπεισα
κάλλος [ἀνθ]ρώπων Ἐλένα [τὸ]ν ἄνδρα
τόν [πανάρ]ιστον
To understand this is for all most simple,
For thus gazing much on mortal perfection
And knowing already what life could give her,
Him chose fair Helen,
καλλ[ίποι]σ’έβα’ς Τροΐαν πλέοισα,
κωὐδ[ὲ πα]ῖδος οὔδε φίλων το[κ]ήων
πά[μπαν] ἑμνάσθη, ἀλλὰ παράγαγ᾽αὔταν
[πῆλε φίλει]σαν
Him the betrayer of Ilium's honour.
Then recked she not of adored child or parent,
But yielded to love, and forced by her passion,
Dared Fate in exile.
Ὠρος. εὔκ]αμπτον γὰρ [ἀεὶ
τὸ θῆλυ]
[αἴ κέ τις] κούφως τ[ὸ πάρον ν]οή[σῃ]ν.
οὐδὲ νῦν, Ἀνακτορίας, ὀνέμναι -
σ’οὐ παρειοῖσας.
Thus quickly is bent the will of that woman
To whom things near and dear seem to be nothing.
So mightest thou fail, My Anactoria,
If she were with you.
τᾶ]ς κε βολλοίμαν ἔρατόν τε βᾶμα
κἀμάρυχμα λάμπρον ἴδην προσώπω
ἢ τὰ Λύδων ἄρματα κἀνὄπλοισι
πεσδομ]άχεντας
She whose gentle footfall and radiant face
Hold the power to charm more than a vision
Of chariots and the mail-clad battalions
Of Lydia's army.
[εὶ μεν ἴδαμεν οὔ δύνατον γένεσθαι
λῷστ᾽ ὀν᾽ ἀνθρώποις, πεδέχην δ᾽ ἄραστηαι,
τῶν πέδειχόν ἐστι βρότοισι λῷον
λελάθεσθαι.]
So must we learn in a world made as this one
Man can never attain his greatest desire,
But must pray for what good fortune Fate holdeth,
Never unmindful.
