hen, in Poseidon's far-famed games, you displayed to the Greeks the swift surge of your feet. For when he reached the finish-line of the racecourse, breathing out a storm of hot breath, and again moistened the cloaks of the spectators with olive oil, rushing into the close-packed crowd when he rounded the fourth turn of the course, the spokesmen of the wise judges proclaimed him twice an Isthmian victor, and twice in Nemea, beside the sacred altar of Zeus son of Cronus. Glorious Thebes also welcomed him fittingly, and spacious Argos, and Sicyon, and those who dwell in Pellene, and in Euboea rich in grain, and on the holy island Aegina. Each man seeks a different path on which to walk to attain conspicuous glory; and the forms of knowledge among men are countless.

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.

ed in his sleep: a sign of the slaughter to come. Powerful fate! The son of Oicles could not persuade them to go back to the streets thronged with good men. Hope robs men [of their sense]: it was she who then sent Adrastus son of Talaus to Thebes to Polyneices The mortal men who crown their golden hair with the triennial garland from those glorious games in Nemea are illustrious; and now a god has given it to the victorious Automedes, for he stood out among the pentathletes as theorts 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. Who does not know the well-built city of dark-haired Thebes, or renowned Aegina, who went to the bed of great Zeus and bore the hero who the land of the Achaeans trials with beautiful robe and Peirene with her twisted garland, and as many other honorable daughters of the ancient resounding r
