Not -- whosoever was the great of yore,
Bursting to bloom with bravery all round --
Is in our mouths: he was, but is no more.
And who it was that after came to be,
Met the thrice-throwing wrestler, -- he
Is also gone to ground.
But "Zeus" -- if any, heart and soul, that name --
Shouting the triumph-praise -- proclaim,
Complete in judgment shall that man be found.
