Bacchylides, Epinicians (ed. Diane Arnson Svarlien), Ode 9 For Automedes of Phlius Pentathlon at Nemea Date unknown (search)
amid the vast circling crowd of the Greeks, did he display his marvellous body, hurling the wheel-shaped discus, and raise a shout from the people as he flung the shaft of the dark-leaved elder-tree from his hand into the steep sky. He executed the flashing movement of wrestling, and brought strong-limbed bodies down to the earth with such high-spirited strength, then returned to the dark-whirling waters of the Asopus, whose fame has reached every land, even the farthest reaches of the Nile. And the women skilled with the spear who live by the fair-flowing stream of Thermodon, daughters of horse-driving Ares, have met with your descendants, much-envied lord of rivers, and so has Troy, the city of high gates. Countless reports of your offspring tread wide paths everywhere, of your daughters with shining belts, whom the gods established, with good fortune, as founders of cities that were never to be sacked.

Bacchylides, Dithyrambs (ed. Diane Arnson Svarlien), Ode 19 (Dithyramb 5) Io: for the Athenians (search)
of Inachus, left Argos, land of horses, by the counsels of widely powerful, greatest Zeus? When Argus, who could see all around with untiring eyes, was bidden by golden-robed Hera, the greatest queen, to guard the lovely-horned heifer, unresting and unsleeping; and the son of Maia could not evade him, neither by shining day nor by sacred night.

Or did the Pierian Muses bring about rest from troubles ? For me, the most secure [path?] is the one which when she arrived at the flowery banks of the Nile, [gadfly-driven] Io, bearing the child Epaphus. There [she bore him?] ruler over linen-robed teeming with majestic and greatest mortal from this race Cadmus, son of Agenor, begat Semele in seven-gated Thebes, and she bore the rouser of Bacchants, Dionysus, the and [lord of] garland-[bearing] choruses.
