Τιμάδος ἅδε κόνις

Language: Aeolic Greek

Τιμάδος ἅδε κόνις, 
τὰν δη πρὸ γάμοιο θανοῦσαν
δέξατο Φερσεφόνας 
κυάνεος θάλαμος,

ἇς καὶ ἀποφθιμένας 
πᾶσαι νεοθᾶγι σιδάρῳ
ἅλικες ἱμερτὰν κρατὸς 
ἔθεντο κόμαν.

This is the dust of Timas

Language: English after the Aeolic Greek

This is the dust of Timas, 
whom Persephone's dark chamber 
received, dead 
before her wedding; 

when she perished, 
all her fellows 
dressed with sharpened steel 
the lovely tresses of their heads.
